Achieving the common good for all
TÜV SÜD’s commitment to the common good takes numerous forms, from donations and collaborations to our own project initiatives. A particular area of focus includes promoting training and education for young people in technical and scientific areas. These projects are initiated by the TÜV SÜD Foundation as well as directly by the member companies of the TÜV SÜD Group.
The TÜV SÜD Foundation is one of the two owners of TÜV SÜD AG. The Foundation funds an array of projects throughout Germany focusing on education and training for young people in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) subjects. All activities of the Foundation are directed toward the overarching goal of generating enthusiasm for modern technology and natural sciences among young people. Since its establishment in 2009, the TÜV SÜD Foundation has invested a total of approximately 4.5 million euros in these social projects. The majority of the Foundation’s funding is derived from dividends from TÜV SÜD AG and donations from companies in the TÜV SÜD Group.
