Together with its cooperation partners, Sartorius is actively involved in shaping the economic and social environment around its sites. Our activities stretch beyond our home regions to include areas linked to our core business. Examples are promoting research and education in addition to supporting events for the scientific community.
Regionally, we are striving to make an impact on the communities where we operate. It is important to us to be good corporate citizens by providing financial support for projects in education, culture, social affairs and sports.
We take a long-term approach to both projects and partnerships. Sartorius is politically independent and does not provide financial or in-kind contributions to politicians or political parties.
