We live social responsibility and this means to us that we assume responsibility towards our society. We show our commitment in many ways. Here you will find some examples:
Learning is fun – BUTTING supports "the green classroom"
From now on, in good weather, children attending a primary school in the Lower Saxony district of Gifhorn will be told: pack up your books and pencil cases and get out into the open-air classroom. As part of renovations in the school playground, BUTTING constructed new benches for a “green classroom”. An apprentice technical product designer developed benches for the school children specially for this project. The school logo and the name of the school were cut into the material at the sides with a jet of water. The six benches were handed over at the end of 2014 as a gift from BUTTING.
Little Scientists' House
Under the auspices of the BUTTING Akademie, we have for many years been supporting kindergartens in the Gifhorn district in a unique cooperation project: the Berlin-based “Haus der kleinen Forscher” (“Little Scientists’ House”) foundation, which began its activities in June 2008.
Its aim is to promote scientific and technical education in the early years all over Germany. The idea is to awaken an interest in natural phenomena in children as young as three to six, and give them the opportunity to experiment and find their own explanations for everyday scientific phenomena. In this way, every child can discover its own inclinations, interests and abilities in scientific matters.
Company football tournament strengthens social cohesion in the region
"The round goes into the square" - according to this motto we have organized the traditional company football tournament on the sports field in Knesebeck in the years 2013 to 2015. Besides the sports performance, the aim of the event was also to maintain and cultivate social contacts between the participating companies and the people in the region. The response was positive and other companys of our region have decided to repeat this event in the following years.
