CSR Overview

Thanks to AfB’s unique concept, companies can now perform qualified acts of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) with very little effort. The replacement of your used IT hardware is done in connection with very concrete CSR steps. This allows for the integration of socially responsible activities into the field of IT. Together we create barrier-free work environments, implement social projects and contribute to environmental protection.

Phineo, the analysis and consulting firm for effective social engagement, has recognized our social commitment.


Our partnerships have an impact


1,000 partnerships at 17 locations in Germany, Austria, France and Switzerland have already created more than 250 jobs in the IT business, around 50% of those for people with disabilities. Studies by the TU Berlin validate the positive ecological contribution of our work. We are more than happy to make the key indicators available to our partners in the form of an eco-audit. In cases where we establish partnerships with big companies, we open an AfB location in their region. In this manner, these companies also help create new jobs.
