Social commitment

The Debrunner Koenig Group is an active partner for sustainable vocational training projects. By committing to vocational education and training, it aims to support Switzerland’s dual training system and promote young talent, while ensuring high-level training that is as broadly based as possible. We are delighted that this has met with a high level of acceptance and identification among our employees. In order to avoid conflicts of interest, we do not donate to political parties, individuals, profit-oriented organisations or bodies whose objectives run counter to our corporate governance policy, as a matter of principle.
