Responsibility

Donations and sponsorship

As an active member of society, the PHOENIX group recognises its responsibility and aims to make a positive contribution to the common good, well beyond the scope of its core business. Our commitment to society is complemented by funding local and regional projects in the vicinity of our sites.

  • What criteria are used to decide which projects to support?

    Our principles:

    • PHOENIX supports projects, initiatives, and organisations at locations or in regions where we are active.
    • We support interregional projects if they lie within our defined areas of focus and relate to our activities as a healthcare provider.
    • The actions must conform to applicable local legal requirements and to our internal rules, such as the code of conduct and anti-corruption policy .
    • The involvement should produce a long-term, sustainable benefit and have an excellent reputation within society.
    • The donation or sponsoring activity follows the principle of quid pro quo. PHOENIX provides cash payments, gifts in kind, or services. In return, the supported party agrees to report on the supported activities and to mention PHOENIX by name.
    • For financial and in-kind donations, PHOENIX requires a complete and proper certification of donation.
  • What projects and organisations does PHOENIX support?

    The PHOENIX group’s mission is “We deliver health across Europe”. This guides our choice of areas to support as part of our social commitment.

    • Promoting pharmaceutical research, such as through the PHOENIX Pharmaceutics Science Award.
    • Deepening our local social commitment by supporting charitable institutions, such as hospitals and day care centres, as well as regional institutions.
    • Group-wide charitable projects, such as support for KULTURBRAS e.V. in Fortaleza, Brazil.
    • Helping to secure future generations of qualified personnel by supporting schools and universities.
  • What is required if you would like PHOENIX to support your project?

    If you would like the PHOENIX group to support a project or event, please submit a brief – maximum one page – project description containing the following information:

    • Contact person for the project
    • Description of the applicant organisation and its goals
    • Project description, costs, and schedule
    • Reasons why PHOENIX should support the project
    • Information about quid pro quo
    • Complete address details, including bank account

    There is no legal obligation for the PHOENIX group to make a contribution. Even if the principles in favour of project support are met, there is no obligation on the PHOENIX group or its subsidiaries to provide any services.

    The PHOENIX group decides on support at its own discretion and on the basis of the means available.

To accept responsibility means to invest in the future.

The PHOENIX group has been supporting the KULTURBRAS e.V. association, which is based in Germany and Brazil, for over 25 years. The association’s core activity is the operation of a day-care centre in Fortaleza, Brazil, in which 96 schoolchildren aged between three and thirteen currently attend school and receive regular meals. Since it was opened, the school has supported and cared for around 1,000 disadvantaged children. The association’s administrative functions in Germany are undertaken by volunteers.
The PHOENIX Pharmaceutics Science Award has now been one of our flagship projects for more than 20 years. Over the years, the original intention of maintaining and publicising cutting-edge research in Germany has been reinforced by the objective of using this Approach to strengthen the pharmaceutical supply chain in the long term. Every year, an independent jury sifts through innovative, original work with pharmaceutical relevance from Germany, Austria, and Switzerland. From these entries, prize winners are selected in four categories. The accolade, with a total value of €40,000, is one of the most prestigious science prizes in the German-speaking world. It is also the only award that recognises the latest work from a whole scientific field.
As part of the "L'hôpital de mon Doudou" project for children between the ages of 2 and 11, PharmaVie finances the construction of mini-hospitals in the children's ward. In the colourfully designed rooms, the children are looked after personally and get a playful explanation of what is going to happen during their upcoming surgical procedure, for example. A teddy bear, which they receive directly on their arrival, helps them. In this way, the little patients can be relieved of their fear of hospitalisation.
