Society: Taking Responsibility
By leveraging their expertise in related issues, they support numerous projects and initiatives that promote education, culture, and science both in Germany and around the world. Klett's efforts in this regard are founded on the conviction that these three areas play an essential role in opening up new perspectives for individuals and society at large.
The Klett Group and its employees are committed to ensuring that education succeeds.
In response to the refugee migration taking place around the world, Klett is aiding those who have come to Germany in learning the local language and integrating into society. Through its activities on behalf of refugees, the Klett Group has also joined the “Wir zusammen” initiative (www.wir-zusammen.de), which involves working with other companies to contribute to the general integration effort in Germany.
The Klett Group has provided financial assistance to the Junge Oper im Nord, or JOiN, since 2019. JOiN is not only responsible for the Stuttgart State Opera’s performances and projects for a younger audience, but it also sees itself as a mediator between performers and audiences, between grand opera and youth opera, between professionals and amateurs, between watching and participating, and between diverse art forms, disciplines and genres.
The Klett Group is also part of “Made in Germany – Made by Diversity”, an initiative by 50 family-run German businesses who, in 2019, jointly advocated greater tolerance and a more cosmopolitan mindset. By participating, we take a stand against xenophobia and call for a more tolerant, open-minded society.
