Many of our colleagues are privately committed to the common good. One of them had the idea to inspire the colleagues at the Hamburg location and at the same time to ask for further support, since food donations have fallen drastically. Since November, any donations for the homeless have been collected through networking and a green box in the Hamburg Office. Whether sleeping bags or durable, packaged food – once a month the donations are sent to the German Red Cross and distributed to people in need.
The organizations Canil da Aroeira (Lisbon) and Associação MIDAS (Porto) take care of the welfare of neglected animals. With a lot of dedication and work, they take care of the adoption, species-appropriate husbandry and medical care. Funds are collected in the donation boxes set up by the employees in the office in order to support the efforts of the associations, so that the animals can also be guaranteed a dignified life and ultimately find a new home. Here, too, it is not about an initiative by diconium, but about supporting the individual commitment of the team with structure and networking.
Gratitude. Giving something back to society and nature. The desire of the colleagues from Lisbon was great and diconium was happy to support the initiative. The case concerned the promotion of climate protection projects that reduce environmental damage. Colleagues from Lisbon had the idea of setting an example on International Tree Day and supporting the Plantar Uma Árvore association. The association develops and implements volunteer programs to restore ecologically damaged areas by restoring native forests and native species involving the community. In March 2021, the Lisbon office had 120 employees, so diconium invested in a total of 120 trees.
