Since its establishment the F. Laeisz group has been committed to supporting local and shipping related initiatives. The interests of the business are invariably more important than the interests of the owner family – this also includes a sincere commitment to the common good. The foundation of the Hamburger Rettungsverein, later merged in the DGzRS (the „Sea Rescuers“), and the Seafarers’ Fund remain our obligation today. In addition to continuous support of minor activities in our native regions Hamburg and Rostock the following examples underline the sustainability of our sponsorship.
Laeiszhalle: In his will Carl Heinrich Laeisz placed our company under the obligation to donate two million Reichsmark for the building of a concert hall in Hamburg. Since 2005 our group once again sponsors the Laeiszhalle Hamburg. For further information please visit www.elbphilharmonie.de.
Tonali: we support the TONALi initiative and its sponsorship of highly talented young musicians. For further information please visit www.tonali.de.
Internationales Maritimes Museum Hamburg: our group has contributed a considerable sum to the capital of the Peter Tamm Sen. Foundation. The museum maintains the rich maritime heritage of the Hanseatic City Hamburg and far beyond. For further information please visit www.internationales-maritimes-museum.de.
Environmental protection: all our actions were based on environmental awareness long before it was in fashion. Our shipping company’s environmental management system was already certified according to ISO 14001 in 1997 - as the very first German shipping company. For us, environmental protection is the result of our considered opinion and conviction.
EEHH: In order to strengthen and promote co-operation in the industry, the network renewable energies Hamburg (EEHH) was created. This bundles the widespread authority of the enterprises, research establishments and institutions of the renewable energy industry and promotes interfaces to other industries, e.g. in the range of new materials and materials.
Both quality of life and environmental protection and the economic development of the Metropolitan area Hamburg receive positive impulses by the development of the renewable energies. The cluster renewable energies Hamburg aims off to secure these positive prospects on a long-term basis to promote above all also on the export markets.

Support of the European Flag: we observe our agreements - this also applies to the maritime alliance between our Federal Government and the German ship owners’ association. F. Laeisz operates more than 60% of its fleet under European flag.
Above all, in doing so we want to reach our goal: to be an outstanding employer and a trustworthy partner.
