As a responsible company, it is entirely natural that we are committed to giving something back or passing it on, both in our region locally as well as to future generations. As a specialist for barcode systems we also feel very much connected to the ‘stripe’ and have even adopted this topic for our sponsorship projects.
Our charitable activities currently focus on projects for children, animals and local sports clubs. We also host the barcode trade show GLOBOScan and the specialist presentation series GLOBOStage. For more info, see exhibitions & events.
Projects that we are sponsoring:
Animals of Hannover Zoo – Power in stripes
Our enthusiasm for stripes refers not only to barcodes – striped animals delight us as well. For several years GLOBOS has therefore been sponsoring different animals in the Hanover Adventure Zoo. Under the motto “Power in stripes” GLOBOS has previously supported the Somali Wild Asses and the Mountain Zebra and now it is the turn of the most powerful amongst the striped families: the Siberian Tiger. GLOBOS founder Olaf Sauer: “As a provider of barcode solutions we of course have a lot to do with black stripes every day. After we had oriented our corporate identity towards this characteristic, our sponsorship of the tiger Kolja was seen as a kind of “icing on the cake”. Unfortunately our big cat Kolja died on 2nd March 2015 at Hanover Zoo at the grand age of 17 years. We then took on the sponsorship of his companion, tiger lady Natasha which died on 03rd August 2016 at the grand age of 19 years.
The GLOBOS family has grown with tiger Aljoscha on 16th December 2016. The one and a half year old cat has moved from Nuremberg to Hanover through the “European Conservation Program (ECP)”. Now he and his wife Alexa will safe their species. This is a very honorable mission for Aljoscha and we are sure he will accomplish, because his strong stripes are convincing.
Business for Kids e. V.
Every year GLOBOS is pleased to sponsor the Business for Kids Association. We have been a member of this charitable association since 2013. Under the motto “help, promote and connect”, Business for Kids has been supporting needy children and young people in Hanover and the surrounding region with financial assistance, equipment, time and know-how since 2009. Business for Kids carefully researches eligible projects and institutions which then receive specific support. The association undertakes numerous activities to obtain donations of which 100% goes to fund projects and institutions. This social commitment and sense of responsibility towards children and young people is a matter of great significance to GLOBOS.
We are pleased that our membership contributes to helping people to help themselves, both on a personal and an occupational level, as well as to promoting the talents of children and young people.
