Social commitment & sustainability
Animal welfare, climate change or poverty reduction – as a company we have a social, ecological and social responsibility.
We take existing problems seriously and work hard to make the world a better place regionally and globally.
Donations – the three-pronged approach
It is our intention to regularly make donations to various social institutions. When selecting projects, it is particularly important to us to cover various topics. We currently support three projects, one regional and two global.
Plan International - The chance for a better future
What is the most important thing you can do for a child? Let the child be a child! Not only a beautiful childhood, but also the fulfilment of basic needs, medical care and the possibility of school education are decisive factors that give children a chance for a better future.
The Plan International organisation has made it its goal to fight the vicious circle of poverty and the lack of opportunities facing children worldwide. We are fortunate enough to live in a privileged society. However, we feel that it is time to help those who do not have such happiness. We wish for a world in which children can develop. Therefore we have taken over the sponsorship for Stephen, a little boy from Kilifi, Kenya.
Kilifi is one of Kenya’s poorest regions, where child labour, rape, forced marriage, disease and poor hygiene conditions are not uncommon. The majority of children in Kenya are forced to contribute to the support of their families, so it is not surprising that only 14% of Kenyans have a primary school leaving certificate. It is close to our hearts to take responsibility for those who are not as well off as we are. Therefore, we are glad that at least our sponsored child Stephen can now go to school with our support and receive medical care. We hope to make his childhood a little more carefree in this way and give him the chance for a better future!
Our region, its people and their future is important to us!
We visited the Cnopf’sche Children’s Hospital in Nuremberg and went along to see the “Rainbow” ward, which cares for children with cancer. There we were able to see for ourselves how lovingly and carefully the little patients are treated and how their well-being is cared for in a family-friendly atmosphere.
In paediatric oncology, patients often stay for a very long time. For this reason, there are different demands on the hospital rooms and the recreation rooms. What is special about this ward is the “playful distraction and occupation opportunities” motto, which shapes the children’s stay. The recovery of the children is supported by age-appropriate occupation opportunities.
In addition to medical care of the highest quality standards, the focus is on the comfort of children and adolescents. To help patients cope better with their often stressful life situations, playrooms, a roof garden and well-equipped lounges with flat screens and laptops should make their time in hospital as pleasant as possible. We have seen with our own eyes what contribution the Cnopf’sche Children’s Hospital makes towards maintaining patients’ enjoyment of life. We want to support this commitment and help the ward with a donation. It is a reassuring feeling that we can rely on good medical care for children and young people in our region.
Every year at Christmas we also donate various games, puzzles and books for children of different ages to make their stay in hospital as pleasant as possible.
"The Ocean Cleanup" project - There is still much to do
Self-realisation – an ideal of our society. The job, our family and friends are thoughts we dedicate ourselves to every day. However, there are a number of topics that are not covered enough, even though they are so important for our existence. We are talking about topics such as climate change, animal welfare and environmental protection. Rogator wants to “think outside the box” and support projects that work for the ecological preservation of our planet. The first step in this direction has already been taken with a donation to the project entitled “The Ocean Cleanup”. “The Ocean Cleanup” is committed to the liberation of the ocean from rubbish and plastic.
Another organisation that we support in this context is the association named “One Earth – One Ocean e.V.”, which is involved in various environmental protection projects and actions for the cleaning of the oceans and various rivers and lakes. For example, various refuse collection vessels are used to remove plastic, oil and chemicals from the water.
We think the dedication of “The Ocean Cleanup” and “One Earth – One Ocean e.V.” is remarkable and we will continue to participate in initiatives like these to help create a cleaner environment.
