IIC not only stands for the manufacture of high-quality plastic packaging but also for foresight and responsibility. It is important to us to look outside the box of everyday business, which is characterised by technical discussions, processes and optimisations, and make a positive footprint on the world.
Passion for our company and its achievements is one thing. That which we call social commitment is another. We keep our eyes open at all times in order to determine where support and aid are necessary. Here you can discover which social and charitable projects we are currently supporting.
Child welfare organisation PLAN International has been involved in improving living conditions in Africa, Asia, Latin America and other regions of the world since 1937. Self-help projects in which the respective communities are directly involved are implemented using sponsorships and donations. The organisation is recognised by the United Nations as a private and independent institution.
By taking over several child sponsorships, IIC has made it possible for young people from poorer regions to have a better childhood and a promising life, which is an important issue: since children are our future.
69 runners went to the start in 2017 – among them a group from IIC. Thanks to the large number of participants, donations to the value of 3,566.14 Euros were collected for Wendepunkt e. V. for the prevention of sexual abuse. We'll be straining our sinews again in 2018 – for a good cause.
Once again next year it's all about: heel to heel, step for step, the finish in sight. 46 runners went to the start on 3rd April. The amount that was donated was 3,089.55 Euros. The Wilhelm Oberle foundation, the administrator of the Freiburg Refugee Fund, was delighted this achievement, which made it possible to finance clothes, food, accommodation, textbooks and German classes.
LEO, which is the youth organisation of the Lions Club, organises an annual sponsored run in Freiburg. Just the right opportunity for us to fly the flag for a good cause. 38 runners took part in the first run in 2015, and IIC employees also took to the road with energetic enthusiasm. It was worth the effort: A donation of 2,920.10 Euros was handed over to the AWO daycare centre on Krozinger Straße in Freiburg.
