2016 wasn't only our jubilee year, but also a successful year financially. Together we have achieved a lot and Baufritz feels obliged by such success to give back.
After having donated predominantly to social causes in previous years this years' Christmas donation went to the German Alpine Society. (Deutscher Alpenverein, DAV)
During the official handing-over of the cheque on the 11th of January 2017 in Erkheim, the Baufritz managing director Dagmar Fritz-Kramer and Mario Reisacher gave the sum of 21.500 Euros to Rudolf Erlacher, Vice President of the German Alpine Society. With this contribution, the German Alpine Society will support a project within the "Protective Forest" program: the work of the Sonthofen forestry operation, part of the Bavarian state forest, will be supported in its effort to plant young trees as well as care for the mountain forests of the Allgaeu region.
"The German Alpine Society conveys heartfelt thanks to the management and staff of Baufritz for the generous donation.", said Rudolf Erlacher. "By supporting the Protective Forest program the company is showing yet again its sustainable and ecological thinking and at the same time their great appreciation of the many volunteers taking annual leave from work and their leisure time to work in the program."
