The ARA service group has long relied on sports sponsoring to raise awareness of environmental protection among young people in particular because people tend to discard more and more packaging while they are out and about.
As a partner of the Austrian Sports Aid Foundation, we support young talents on their way to the top, and the young athletes serve as role models for sustainable behaviour. Since 2013, we have been a partner of the Austrian Football Association, ÖFB, as football offers excellent opportunities for communicating our environmental message to a large audience.
We take social responsibility above and beyond our business activities by supporting social projects with a focus on children and adolescents.
One constant has been our participation in the Kids’ Rally, an initiative launched by former rally driver Helmut Schindelegger for children with special needs. We also support the association T.I.W., which helps disadvantaged young people search for a job, start their career and solve problems at the workplace.
Further donations go to Boje, a centre offering crisis intervention, psychotherapeutic support, and counselling for traumatised children and adolescents, Mirno More, a sailing project for socially disadvantaged young people promoting tolerance, integration and peaceful coexistence, and Caritas.
