We want to create added value for society
at all our company sites, in concrete local projects, and together with our employees. To do so we focus on the basic needs of people for healthy food, healthy living, and environmentally-friendly energy as the heart of our company activity.
Giving something back and making a difference to others – this was the motivation that lead BayWa AG to set up the BayWa Foundation in 1998. Since then, the foundation has been involved in educational projects in the fields of healthy nutrition and renewable energy, both locally and around the world. Thanks to the support of BayWa AG and numerous sponsors, more than 60 projects have now been implemented. The BayWa Foundation is committed to promoting knowledge, teaching about healthy nutrition and making renewable energy understandable. By pursuing these objectives, the foundation is able to give something back and help others.
Together with the Technical University of Munich, BayWa is supporting research and education on international agricultural economics in the field of agricultural and horticultural sciences within the framework of an endowed chair.
Diversity Charter – what does it mean for BayWa?
The Diversity Charter is an employer’s initiative which was set up in 2006 to promote diversity in companies and institutions. Since that time, 3,400 companies and institutions have signed the Charter – including BayWa AG and BayWa r.e. By signing this document publicly, BayWa undertakes to actively promote a culture of mutual respect and cooperation. As part of this culture, each individual must have the feeling that they, with their individual characteristics and capabilities, is an integral part of the company, will be able to fulfil their potential and can make an optimal contribution to the company’s success. BayWa makes sure that all guidelines, processes and programmes, including search and selection criteria in the recruitment process, career models, HR and management development programmes contribute to avoiding discrimination and that diversity is seen as an opportunity and an enrichment in the Group.
