For AdEx Partners it is self-evident to take social and ecological responsibility. The three responsibility areas People, Purpose and Planet build the foundation for our sustainability approach.

People

Employees first

Corporate responsibility towards our own employees: a flexible working time model, a good work-life balance and health benefits. Once a month we conduct an anonymous satisfaction survey to identify and address potential areas for improvement as early as possible. Our motto: Motivated, healthy and happy employees form the basis for successful projects and satisfied clients.

AdEx Partners - a participatory company

As Trusted Advisors we have a considerable leverage effect when donating our skills and expertise for the common good. By offering pro bono work to social institutions, we find purpose, broaden our horizons, deepen our skills, think out of the box, introspect and learn for ourselves.

One family!

We see ourselves as one big family. We regularly organize team events, take part in local sport events and organize summer events including partners and kids of all AdEx employees!

Our culture

The AdEx Family is characterized by an exceptionally good and open working culture. Teamwork, integrity and respect are not just buzzwords but an integral part of our identity. This is reflected by our numerous awards: Find more information on our career portal

Purpose

Our pro bono projects

Since 2017, we have been accompanying Germany’s largest foodbank "Tafel Deutschland e.V." as an official pro bono consulting partner in their nationwide digitization project "Tafel macht Zukunft - gemeinsam digital". In this project, we are applying our experience and expertise in digital transformation, agile project management and change management, among other things. Read in the Tafel story how AdEx is helping to save more food from waste, distribute it more efficiently and increase transparency. 

One of our core competencies is being applied in our project with the umbrella organization "SOS Children's Villages International”: the conceptual design of an IT operating model for the globally operating ICT teams. A typical skilled volunteering mission!

Digital Boot Camps for Social Entrepreneurs

Social entrepreneurs tackle societal problems in an entrepreneurial way, seeking to drive systemic change. In close coordination with our network partner Ashoka, the world's largest network for social entrepreneurs, AdEx Partners organizes bootcamps to help social entrepreneurs overcome challenges in IT, digitalization, strategy, and other transformations. Selected organizations are supported by the experts of AdEx Partners, working on individual challenges for several months to develop and implement new solutions.  

In 2020 for the first time, also student consultants from the umbrella organization JCNetwork e.V. participated in the consultation of social entrepreneurs. Hereby, the students were able to gain insights into the consulting activities, learn from experts and contribute to the development of solutions with their own unique perspectives.

Our Charity Projects

As a long-standing corporate partner, AdEx regularly supports the NGO "Childaid Network". Their vision is to provide children and young people in need with, among others, a qualified basic education, in order to create an important prerequisite for a self-determined life and thus a better future. For us, this is a matter of heart.

A team of AdEx Partners took part in the 24h race at Rad am Ring in July 2019 aiming to complete as many laps as possible. Not (only) for their own ego, but to collect as many donations as possible for the Besi & Friends Foundation, which supports people with neurological and immune diseases. Colleagues and clients have generously donated both, per lap and fixed amounts. This year, an AdEx team is planning to compete again! 

Planet

Climate change, species extinction and other environmental challenges pose a major threat to our Earth. We therefore carry out extensive internal efforts to become more environmentally friendly.

We evaluate

…our corporate carbon footprint (incl. CO2-equivalent CO2e) to measure the progress towards our competitive goals and to develop a roadmap to become more eco-friendly. 

We avoid

…CO2 by increased virtual collaboration to reduce travel. As experts in digitalization, we also leverage our knowledge to minimize emissions! For us it is a given to use green electricity in our offices. 

We reduce

…CO2e by efficient travel planning, preferring trains over flights, paperless offices and recycling wherever possible. We donate older hardware to extend product life cycles. Tips & tricks on CO2 reduction are exchanged and continuously growing in our internal “Green Wiki”. 

 

In 2020, we focus on avoiding and reducing our carbon footprint rather than compensating it. This puts us pressure to make our behavior more environmentally friendly. If it is essential for our customer, we are happy to offset the unavoidable part of our CO2e footprint through certified green projects.

AdEx Partners is a participant of the United Nations Global Compact

The Global Compact is an initiative launched by the UN in which companies worldwide can voluntarily commit to a sustainable and responsible corporate governance. Since 1999, ten central principles regarding human rights, labor, environment, and anti-corruption offer a guideline for companies’ behavior and for measuring their progress.

In March 2021, we published our first annual progress report. In addition to the renewed commitment to the goals of the UN Global Compact, the report contains descriptions of concrete measures for the integration of the pact's objectives, as well as examples of successfully achieved goals.

The full report, including a list of the ten principles, is now available here.

AdEx Partner’s focus is especially on the following Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs):
