Commerzbank and its staff have been supporting Welthungerhilfe’s work for many years, especially with regard to urgent emergency-aid measures in response to natural disasters. In 2017, a spare change initiative was introduced, with participating employees having the figures to the right of the decimal place on their pay cheques rounded down and donated to organisations like Welthungerhilfe.
The projects that receive these donations are reselected every year. Rüdiger Senft, Head of Corporate Responsibility for Commerzbank: “We were able to attract over 4,000 members of our staff for the spare change initiative—truly a success. Our partnership with Welthungerhilfe has been professional, transparent, and confidence-inspiring.”
