The Porsche Sustainability Report encompasses more than just the marque’s devotion to aiding environmental sustainability – both in terms of lowering vehicle emissions, and in creating less waste as a byproduct of production. The report also highlights Porsche’s continuing altruistic efforts to help promote sports, culture, welfare and education in Germany, and around the globe.
The Porsche Sustainability Report outlines a number of engagements with regard to social commitment, including supporting German children’s hospitals, counseling clinics, churches, and other domestic institutions. The company also goes abroad with the “A Roof For My Country” non-profit, which facilitates the construction of stable housing and social integration of some of Latin America’s poorer, more disconnected citizens.
Porsche sustainability also means contributing to cultural institutions like the Stuttgart Ballet and the Gewandhaus Orchestra Leipzig. In fact, the automaker is the biggest single contributor to the latter, and signed-on to sponsor the orchestra at least through 2017. The marque contributes to several domestic MINT schools (Math, Information, Natural-science, Technology), and offers the “Ferry Porsche Prize” annually to leading students in math, science and technology, to encourage the world’s future engineers.
The list of other commitments outlined in the Porsche Sustainability Report is, frankly, exhaustive; the above is just a select sampling. But it makes clear that Porsche is not only getting onboard with the solution with a growing range of hybrid cars, but also helping to lay part of a fundamentally better, stronger social foundation.
