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 4.2 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.

    • Green HRM: TÜV SÜD has been part of the international research project “Comparative Green HRM” since October 2018. The project is a partnership between the University of Augsburg and Vienna University of Economics in which ecological strategies and practices in the human resources field are subjected to international comparison. The study focuses closely on the roles played by teams and management executives and their impact on environmentally responsible behavior. The results of the research project will contribute towards providing a framework for employees and management to implement environmentally oriented strategies and help to manage conflict in this context.

    • E-mobility: Various German locations provide electric vehicle charging points for customers and employees. As a pioneer of electric mobility, we aim to shape the future of personal mobility.
    • Roof Greening: We are gradually introducing roof greening at our German locations. The process uses highly biodiverse planting that creates habitats and food for a maximum number of insects. As the most recent example, the roof of our company headquarters in Munich is now home to a swarm of bees, which will be tended by a beekeeper in future.
