The foundation

The Hamburg Foundation for Business Ethics is a charitable foundation, which focuses on business and responsibility. That's what we do and who we are. But the decisive factor is "How".

As a mixture between a financing foundation and operational ThinkTank, we not only take care of the socio-political advocacy of social and economic issues, but also focus on strategic partnerships to shape social changes together.

We work on topics dealing with business and responsibility, lead discussions on where corporate responsibility begins and where it ends. This means looking at the entire value added chain of companies and identifying the consequences of business activity for the environment and society.

The ethical risk assessment of different sectors (era-paper) therefore lies at the heart of our work. Since this makes it possible to translate moral problems into an economic language.
