We at MEVACO see it as our duty to actively assume responsibility for the environment. We are constantly checking and improving our work processes in order to ensure a sustainable, ecological way of working. The same applies for the social commitment of MEVACO where we support projects, which give young people a helping hand with regard to starting their careers.

FOR A GOOD CAUSE Learning is a crucial part of life. School and family play an important role in this connection, as they significantly contribute to the knowledge transfer. Unfortunately, the playing-field is not level for all children. Many children do not receive enough support and care. We want to change this. We regularly provide financial support to the solidarity campaign “Strong Kirchheim – No child left behind". Our financial donations are used for the education of these children.
HELPING YOUNG PEOPLE JUMP-START THEIR CAREERS MEVACO supports the “Brückenhaus” project, which accompanies young persons as they start out on their working lives. We don’t just provide financial support; we offer young people the opportunity to obtain professional qualifications via placements. The young persons are introduced to working life in the MEVACO production department for a 3 to 6 month training period. In this connection, the trainees learn key skills such as punctuality, reliability, autonomy, how to take on responsibility, the ability to work in a team and the ability to deal with conflict.
MUSIC TO OUR EARS The Raunerschule in Kirchheim has a unique profile, as this primary and junior high school, which focuses on practical skills, has made music courses for instrumental and singing lessons a fixed part of everyday school life. Studies have shown that musical education has a positive effect on learning behaviour. The concept behind the music courses and the enthusiasm of the teachers won us over! Since March 2012, MEVACO is providing financial support for the music courses and is thus sponsoring another children and youth project, which lies close to our hearts.
