With the slogan “People make it possible” the RWE Companius team promotes volunteering activities by employees across the Group.

The “sport group for the disabled” initiative
A living example of corporate volunteering is the commitment of a team from innogy Consulting, which has assisted the sports club for the disabled “TSV Bayer 04 Leverkusen” in developing a recruitment strategy.
The team identified, that although current members are extremely satisfied, the sports club has difficulties reaching out for new young people with disabilities, and thus fulfilling their vision to “give young people with disabilities a new perspective in life by means of sports”.
In addition to a recruitment strategy, the team launched different initiatives to support the club in addresssing people with disabilities in a structured and targeted manner in the following areas:
Designing new emotional posters,flyers and information brochures for potential new members
Creating communication brochures to set-up cooperations with local sports clubs
Defining required optimisation areas on the website and contacting IT agencies for a potential cooperations
Creating presentations for information sessions in local schools conducted by athletes
Commitment at Enactus

Since 2003, Enactus has also been active in Germany and is now represented at 41 universities. innogy Consulting is one of the main sponsors and actively involved in several social student projects.
innogy Consulting supports Enactus with what we do best: high quality consulting. Enactus teams receive individual attention from us; we offer, for example, project management training and act as mentors for each team and project. The Enactus students organise themselves in teams at their respective universities and start their own entrepreneurial projects to solve challenges in society, the economy and the environment.
