Our corporate social responsibility program
Our Current Projects
CSR ERBER Group is supporting an ecology project in Ecuador in cooperation with MENSCHEN FÜR ANDERE. With a total area of 5.5 million square kilometres, the Amazon region is not only a "green lung" or "air conditioning system" - an important factor for the ecological balance of the earth - it is also one of the most diverse regions of the world.
CSR ERBER Group is cooperating with CIPCA (Centro de Investigacion y Capacidacion del Campesinado) in Peru over three years to improve the water quality through conservation of the soils and forests in the Singocate Microbasin, District Canchaque Province of Huancabamba, Department Piura.
In October, we visited our Farming project in Mongata in the Democratic Republic of Congo. Women were among the first group to join the project. They know what is necessary: food for their children and schooling for them. In midst of all their problems they are full of joy.
Banteay Prieb training center offers a fresh start to people who face discrimination and isolation. CSR ERBER Group supports the farming programs at the center.
Since 2011, Lebanon has been the first place of refuge for people fleeing from the war in Syria. More than 1.5 million Syrians (around 75% are women and children) have found refuge here: in tent camps in the Bekaa Valley and in cellar rooms in cities like Jbeil, Beirut (Bourj Hammoud) and Baalbek.
Together with CSR ERBER Group, we support development aid projects in agriculture, provide disaster relief, and we are involved in local assistance programs for refugees. At the same time, it was always important for us to offer professional support to people in need here in Austria as well. We have found a very capable partner organization: Bauern für Bauern (Farmers for Farmers).
