Transparent and responsible action is one of the principles of our work. Our employees are committed to guidelines and standards to ensure that the funds entrusted to us are handled conscientiously. In this way, we want to offer partners and supporters the highest degree of transparency and live up to their trust in us and our work.

We were officially awarded the PHINEO impact seal. The seal of impact for climate protection was given to us for our ‘100 Million Trees’ reforestation project in Indonesia. As a non-profit platform, PHINEO uses scientific methods to evaluate the objective impact of charitable projects and honours them with the seal of approval. We were selected from over 101 applicants alongside 14 others, such as the NABU Foundation National Natural Heritage, ForTomorrow and the Siemens Foundation. “The PHINEO Impact Seal means a lot to us. Because even though we know internally about our impact, it is all the more important that potential donors can objectively ensure that their money is being used effectively to make a difference,” says Wolfgang Baum, CEO of Fairventures Worldwide in Stuttgart.
