Software AG GB 2013. englisch

As a socially responsible software company, we are partic- ularly committed to education and innovation. Examples include Software AG’s active participation in the annual German IT Summit and the BITKOM industry association. “A big tree needs strong roots”: This is the guiding principle of our regional software cluster, a network of partners from the worlds of science, business and government. The net- work offers access to research findings, expert professionals and industry colleagues while promoting rising talent as well as Germany’s role as a center of business. We establish partnerships through our University Relations program and foster direct contact and exchange with the next generation of talent. We offer our employees leeway for creative, innovative work and support for social engagement worldwide. We are proud that so many of our colleagues participate in numer- ous civic projects, and we support their volunteer activities. For example, the “Move Your Feet to Give a Hand” campaign has combined Company sports, team spirit and social in- volvement for six years now. For every kilometer run by Software AG employees at official races, our Company donates a fixed amount to the Software AG Foundation. As part of the “Under the Sign of the Lily” social campaign, Software AG has joined forces with Special Olympics Hesse and the SV 98 Darmstadt soccer team to organize a soccer training session with physically and developmentally dis- abled athletes. Social engagement is a firmly ingrained assumption at our Company, and part of Software AG’s history: The Soft- ware AG Foundation was launched more than 20 years ago by one of our Company’s co-founders, Peter Schnell. In so doing, he laid the foundation for sustainability and respon- sibility and anchored these principles as a central component of our corporate culture. As Software AG’s main shareholder, the foundation is an important anchor investor providing the Company with long-term independence and its employees with job security. Rain didn’t dampen the spirits of numerous Software AG employees who ran in the Frankfurt marathon. Sustainability and responsibility form the foundation of our business. 27 Corporate Governance Report of the Supervisory Board Group Management Report Consolidated Financial Statements Notes Additional Information
