Social commitment

Our contribution to society – a matter close to our hearts.

Responsibility as a family business

Prudent partner for the regions

As a family business, it is very important to us at THIMM to make a positive contribution to our society alongside our business activities. Since THIMM was founded in 1949 by Walter-Felix Thimm, we have fulfilled this social responsibility and we are actively involved in various social projects. We are particularly focused on providing support to the regions around our sites.

Principles of our social commitment

It is important to THIMM to promote as many different projects and facilities as possible. The prerequisite is always the proximity to one of our company sites.

Through our donation activities we support:

  • Charitable organisations and humanitarian providers. These include hospices, women’s shelters, foodbanks, services for people with severe illnesses or disabilities, as well as child and family assistance.
  • Facilities and projects to promote education, upbringing and science. Examples of these include nurseries, schools and supported workshops.
  • Initiatives and projects that contribute to improving the quality of life in the regions of our sites: Civic performance halls, cultural events, association work, public swimming pools and similar.

We make donations through financial contributions or through material donations such as paper, corrugated cardboard or packaging.

Our donation guidelines

Who is supported?

Our donation activities are always selected on specific criteria, which we transparently present in our donation guidelines.

Our responsibility as a family business

Quote from Kornelius Thimm

“As a family business it is very important for us to give something back to society. We firmly believe that as a company we have a responsibility towards our environment and the people who live in the regions around our THIMM sites. We are particularly pleased to support initiatives in which our employees are personally involved. We are committed to local projects that promote education and culture, as well as to charitable initiatives to improve the common good.

Our responsibility towards the environment has always been deeply rooted in our company. Even over 75 years ago, when my grandfather was in the business, our products were sustainable from the ground up. We see sustainable action as a fundamental value and as a commitment to future generations. This conviction has also led to our focus on renewable energies and we continuously implement efficient technologies for sustainable and resource-saving production. This enables us to minimise our ecological footprint and actively help shape a sustainable future.”

Kornelius Thimm, CEO

Corporate Responsibility at THIMM

Three pillars of sustainability

Since 2014, we have been guided by the classic three pillars of sustainability which have now become established in the national and international environment, namely: Economy, Ecology and Society.

This is why we use our economic success to promote social projects and initiatives for the well-being of society. In the context of ecology, we also attach great importance to sustainability and environmental protection – both for ourselves and for the packaging for our customers.
