ESG can easily come into our world when neighbors care about neighbors and at the same time help entrepreneurs: With a generous donation of beverages, VP Bank (Luxembourg) SA and VP Fund Solutions (Luxembourg) SA thank the staff of the "Hôpital du Kirchberg" for their great commitment during the Corona crisis, while at the same time supporting young local companies.

The Management of VP Bank (Luxembourg) SA and VP Fund Solutions (Luxembourg) SA has made a donation of beverages to the neighboring "Hôpital du Kirchberg". Within the scope of the "Neighbors for Neighbors" project, the two Luxembourg financial services providers thanked the hospital's staff for their exceptional dedication in times of Covid-19.

The donation in kind comprised 1.130 bottles of fresh fruit juice. In keeping with its social responsibility, VP Bank ordered the beverages from three young regional companies that, like VP Bank, live the principle of sustainability.

The official handover took place on Friday, 15 May 2020, in the "Hôpital du Kirchberg" across the street. The neighborhood ceremony took place in the presence of Thomas Steiger, CEO of VP Bank (Luxembourg) SA, and Eduard von Kymmel, CEO of VP Fund Solutions (Luxembourg) SA, as well as representatives of all companies involved.

Within the scope of its sustainable activities, VP Bank in Luxembourg already received a certificate in March 2020, which attests to the company's sustainable waste management in accordance with ISO 14024.

"I am convinced that companies that treat our limited natural resources with care and actively assume their responsibility for society, the economy and the environment are better positioned for the future," says Thomas Steiger explaining VP Bank's commitment to sustainability.
