Organization

The Hamburger Stiftung für Wirtschaftsethik is a Non-Profit Organization for Ethics and Economics, which focuses on global supply chains and the challenges they are facing. 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.

Our approach in the field of business ethics raises the question of how far corporate responsibility goes and which actors and actions are needed to reach the goal of a more ethical and more sustainable global economy. This means looking at the entire value 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.
