Fact 8: SMEs have a strong sense of social responsibility

It is estimated that German companies voluntarily put €11.2 billion into society every year. Here again, the great sense of responsibility and special mindset of the SMEs is evident: more than 63 percent of the companies with fewer than 50 employees and over 71 percent of the companies with 50-499 employees invest in projects for children and young people, cultural and social projects, or other projects of social interest. The percentage of socially responsible companies is admittedly much higher among the large-scale companies, but in proportion to their turnover, the SMEs put more money into social projects.
