DATEV Beachcleaner: Together for Nature

Sustainability is a central future trend with high relevance for companies as well as for the tax consulting profession.

DATEV members see this relevance both in the areas of financing, reporting or supply chain due diligence as well as in their own consultancy (insulation, electricity and paper requirement) and also regarding their staff. Today, they have clearly higher expectations of their employers’ sustainability.

Nationwide Sustainability Campaign: Together for Nature

Under the motto „Together for Nature” DATEV organizes 2022 a nationwide sustainability campaign with its sponsoring partner Bachcleaner Initiative as well as its members and its staff.

Clean up One's Own Backyard

On 8 June 2022 „World Oceans Day” takes place, an international day for the oceans. The weeks beforehand DATEV uses as an opportunity to jointly clean up its own backyard: in nearby parks, around lakes, along rivers, thus taking a stand against littering.

So Much Litter: Every Helping Hand Counts

Each minute one truckload of plastic is thrown into the oceans. 80 % are domestic/land-based, getting through rivers to the sea. Litter has a huge impact on the underwater environment, its ecosystems and sea dwellers, as well as on human health and survival. Every second breath contains oxygen from the sea.

And of course, plastic waste is extremely harmful on land, too, infants can be poisoned with thrown away cigarette ends, birds can die miserably after ingesting food containing plastic waste. Set a sign and take part in a clean-up event in your own surroundings, with your family, kids, grandchildren, or colleagues. It’s perfect for getting started and make things happen. Especially kids will be thrilled. A clean-up event is easily organized, creating visibility and awareness for this issue.
