Facts & Figures

We see ourselves as a community and therefore do not only think about the lives of our employees, but also about their families. That is why we have been supporting the Yadav family since 2022 by covering the costs for the school education of little Aaradhya, who has therefore been attending kindergarten since March 2022.

As a female brand, we want to strengthen the role of girls and women in society. Thus, we are supporters of UN Woman since 2020. In doing so, we advocate for gender equality and strengthen the rights of women and girls worldwide. Furthermore, as a climate-neutral company, we now also operate a climate-neutral website.

As part of our CSR initiatives, we have taken on the godparenthood of a girl in Cambodia in 2019. In addition, we are also a climate-neutral company since this year.
