Social Commitment

DZ HYP plays an active role in society. We know that our decisions have a direct influence on the environment in which we live and work. This is why we, together with our employees, are committed to making a contribution to social cohesion at our company locations. We support a large number of social projects and institutions, along with specialist charitable organisations in our field, and also support the commitment within DZ BANK Group. The cooperative basic values of aiding empowerment, solidarity as well as sustainable and responsible conduct, are cornerstones for our activities. Moreover, DZ HYP has a positive impact on economic and social development at its locations – as an employer and contractor.

Among other things, the Bank promotes the Active Citizenship Association (Aktive Bürgerschaft), which advocates civic action and non-profit organisations. We also support the CLUB OF ROME’s German charter, by providing the club’s branch office at our premises in Hamburg at no charge. Further, DZ HYP is the host and financial backer of the annual meeting of the CLUB OF ROME schools network.

Examples of DZ HYP’s professional commitment include the promotion of the Women in Real Estate VISIONALE 2019 initiative (Frauen in der Immobilienwirtschaft VISIONALE 2019), and of the alumni network of the real estate industry, IMMOEBS.

As part of its commitment to social responsibility, the Bank subsidises the Hamburg Donors’ Parliament (Hamburger Spendenparlament), among other things. On the annual Social Day, employees support charitable projects during their working hours. Our annual Christmas collection, too, benefits various charitable organisations.
