The organisation AfB Slovakia s.r.o. was awarded with a prize for its social commiment! This happened on October 19, 2021 as a part of the German-Slovak Economic Forum 2021 event, which has been organized by the AHK Slovakia (Slovak-German Chamber of Commerce and Industry) as a part of its initiative #PartnerForSustainability (which was presented at a press conference one week before the event).

This year's main topics were #sustainability and #alternative mobility. The main word was given to Mr. Richard Sulík (Minister of Economy of the Slovak Republic), who emphasized that Germany is a key partner for Slovakia and that the Industry 4.0 concept is currently one of the basic criteria for ensuring sustainability.

At the event, many #PartnerForSustainability partner companies presented their best practices in areas such as social engagement, education or climate protection (a list of participating companies can be found at the end of the article).

We are extremely proud to be part of the #PartnerForSustainability initiative and to be able to help take responsibility for the future of our planet and children. We appreciate the award we received and will do everything in the future to prove, that we deserve it!

What is the #PartnerForSustainability initiative?

#PartnerForSustainability is an initiative of the AHK Slovakia and its partner companies, which aims to help better harmonize economic competitiveness with environmental and social responsibility and thus actively participate in building a path to a sustainable future.

The #PartnerForSustainability Memorandum includes common principles and a call for policy makers to include sustainability issues in their agenda and to create a framework for the economy, that will support the development of sustainable business activities. It also includes specific recommendations to remove existing barriers.
