Corporate Social Responsibility

Giving Back to Society

Corporate Social Responsibility is very important to us. Therefore STUDEX has been engaged in various local and international projects for many years, especially in the fields of youth sports sponsorships, social institutions, and disaster relief.

For example, STUDEX sponsors the local track and field club (Förderkreis der Eckentaler Leichtathleten e.V.), located just around the corner from our German subsidiary in Eckental near Nuremberg. Our commitment includes the sponsoring of the team’s jerseys, additional financial aids for the club, and providing a vehicle for trips to sports events and competitions. The STUDEX logo adorns the jerseys of the young athletes, who are performing extremely well—from the local and regional to state level and even in national and international championships. Laura Gröll, for example, has been crowned the German Octathlon Champion of 2016. In addition, several sports events of the club carry the sponsor’s name, such as STUDEX® Sprint Day (Sprintertag) or STUDEX® Eckental Cross.

Together with the House of Sports and other regional partners, STUDEX supports a regional children’s charity organization (Kinder für Kinder e.V. Eckental) and the ATP tennis tournament Bauer Water Technology Cup in Eckental/Nuremberg, which was founded to support this children’s fund. For more than 20 years, this ATP Challenger tournament with a current prize money of €30,000 has drawn national and international tennis stars to Frankonia. In addition to an annual financial contribution, STUDEX also helps this international indoor tennis championship of Bavaria by granting vacation days to employees volunteering with the access control team. As every year, many top players are expected to come to Eckental this year as well. In addition, STUDEX is a sponsor of the runners, cyclists and swimmers of Franken Speed Fighter e.V.

We also helped a local preschool (Evangelischer Kindergarten Eckenhaid) with a contribution to the purchase of playground equipment. And we support the Lions Club Eckental-Heroldsberg with the annual purchase of typical local bakery goods for Mardi Gras.

STUDEX also supports various international projects. For example, we help with contributions for the victims of natural disasters, e.g. after the devastating typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines in the year 2013. And we maintain a child sponsorship with a charity that helps people in South India (Zukunft für Menschen in Südindien e.V.).
