CAD Schroer contributes to a better, fairer and more sustainable future based on four foundations: climate protection, culture, education and satisfied employees.

Social commitment has a long tradition at CAD Schroer. Our campaigns and projects do their bit to help children and young people all over the world. At CAD Schroer, it is part of our self-image to support social projects and help people. But topics such as climate protection or integration are also omnipresent due to their topicality. As an internationally active software company, CAD Schroer has been supporting selected local or international projects and aid campaigns for many years.

Art exhibition

CAD Schroer supports with art and sound in virtual space

Exhibition by Anica Blagaj and Franco Melis – People with medical-scientific evolutionary leaps. The interplay of digitalisation, artificial intelligence and genetic research yields a lot of possibilities. But how do humans as living beings cope with these changes? An exhibition provides the answers.

Education projects

Education is not only a fundamental human right and key to development, education can also combat social injustice and empower people to live self-determined lives.

VR school project – pupils recreate their own school in virtual reality

The grammar school in the Filder Benden in Moers uses CAD Schroer’s CAD and VR solutions in a project course. The school building was recreated in 3D with the help of M4 PLANT and then brought into virtual reality with i4 MEETING.

Better access to education for children and young people

“Since I got my bike, my school life has changed tremendously. I have better grades now and my way to school is so much easier and faster,” says Aleni.

Aleni represents millions of girls in Africa whose journeys to school every morning and evening are almost impossible. In addition, domestic responsibilities and cultural conventions are a major obstacle to further education for girls. As part of World Bicycle Relief’s education programme, schoolgirls like Aleni are given a bicycle to help them better manage their journey to school. When they are mobile, they go to school more regularly, learn more and increase their chances of successfully completing school. A good education opens doors, makes people independent, and enables them to develop their own talents.

Education is an essential prerequisite for a self-determined life. CAD Schroer therefore wants to create basic conditions for access to education, and supports children and young people in disadvantaged regions of the world with a wide variety of projects to this end.

Climate protection

A transparent, clear corporate structure and committed employees ensure the responsible use of energy and raw material resources in order to minimise emissions and waste, and protect the life-sustaining elements of earth, air, water and light.

With the construction of our new headquarters in 2013, a sustainable overall concept was developed for the company that makes our claim tangible for both customers and employees: a sustainable office building with a special focus on energy efficiency and resource conservation.

CO2 footprint

Transport researchers at the Technical University of Dresden have determined that Germany could save almost three million tonnes of CO2 annually if only every second car journey of less than five kilometres was made by bicycle instead. CAD Schroer promotes cycling among its employees with various campaigns and attractive incentives.

Employee satisfaction

The satisfaction, motivation and productivity of our employees is very close to our hearts. Whether it is health in the workplace, the compatibility of family and career, or the motivation to be active in sports: CAD Schroer’s employees can rely on fair working conditions that help maintain their health. Central aspects for us as a responsible employer are, for example, flexible working time models.

Reconciling family and career is often difficult. This makes the family-friendliness that is anchored in the company culture and practised on a daily basis all the more important: parental leave, especially “paternity leave”, is a matter of course and desired by all employees. There is an annual family festival at every location where all employees meet with their families and have a great time together.
