Corporate Citizenship Working Group

What do com­pa­nies achieve that are involved in social engage­ment? Which meth­ods are suit­able for the cre­ative devel­op­ment and long-term plan­ning of engage­ment pro­grams? And how can their impact be fur­ther enhanced?

These and oth­er ques­tions are being dis­cussed by the Cor­po­rate Cit­i­zen­ship Work­ing Group, which is led by PHI­NEO and unites ded­i­cat­ed large com­pa­nies want­i­ng to strate­gi­cal­ly posi­tion their cor­po­rate engagement.

PHI­NEO high­lights rel­e­vant top­ics and devel­op­ments. It also out­lines proven approach­es, meth­ods and prac­ti­cal exam­ples of Cor­po­rate Cit­i­zen­ship and impact ori­en­ta­tion in the non­prof­it sector.


Project part­ners: sev­er­al large com­pa­nies & cor­po­ra­tions | Dura­tion: since 2013, annu­al new edition


In addi­tion to the learn­ing and work­ing process with­in the group, there is an exchange with non­prof­it orga­ni­za­tions and a selec­tion of experts.

The mem­bers of the work­ing group col­lec­tive­ly address four main topics:

  • the rel­e­vance of the cor­po­rate pur­pose for a com­pa­ny’s citizenship 
  • stan­dards and best prac­tices in cor­po­rate cit­i­zen­ship reporting 
  • cor­po­rate giving

The fol­low­ing com­pa­nies are engaged in the work­ing group:

  • Con­ti­nen­tal AG
  • Deutsche Bank
  • Deutsche Post DHL
  • ERGO

  • EY

  • KPMG

  • Media­Markt Saturn

  • Mer­ck

  • Merz Phar­ma

  • Munich Re

  • Olym­pus

  • Rand­stad

  • Scout24

  • Siemens

  • ThyssenK­rupp

  • Union Invest­ment

All par­tic­i­pants are unit­ed in their desire to increase the pos­i­tive impact of their com­mit­ment. PHI­NEO is hap­py to sup­port them!

In the past we have already addressed these top­ics & meth­ods with the Cor­po­rate Cit­i­zen­ship Work­ing Group:

  • impact mea­sure­ment of CC projects with a focus on social impacts
  • CC and social media — acti­vat­ing com­mu­ni­ca­tion of the engagement
  • sup­port­ing the CC man­age­ment with soft­ware solutions
  • CC as a field of work — cen­tral aspects and com­pe­ten­cies of CC management

We should main­tain the mix of meth­ods: exter­nal guests, con­tri­bu­tions of experts, group work, col­le­gial case con­sul­ta­tion, etc.”

The Exchange with col­leagues is a very impor­tant aspect of the work­ing group.”
