As Switzerland's leading construction and real estate services provider, Implenia contributes its share to development.
Sustainability and partnership-based relationships form the basis of every Implenia sponsorship - even outside the real estate and construction services sector. The commitments focus on culture, innovation and education, as well as on institutions in the social sector. In addition to smaller, local sponsorships, Implenia is also involved at a broader level, as the following examples show.
ETH PROFESSORSHIP "INNOVATIVE AND INDUSTRIAL CONSTRUCTION”
The ETH professorship "Innovative and Industrial Construction" of Prof. Dr. Daniel Hall is part of a funding program of Implenia. The professorship aims to increase innovation throughout the construction industry and to further develop know-how in the construction sciences. Findings from research should be able to be used for concrete process optimization along the entire value chain of a construction project. In addition, the partnership is to promote the attractiveness of the subject, the training of young engineers, and the exchange of knowledge between research and industry.
Implenia has a long-standing partnership with the "Smiling Gecko" association. "Smiling Gecko" is an aid project that uses economically and ecologically sustainable cluster projects to promote a holistic approach to continuously improving the living conditions of the rural Cambodian population. Since August 2017, Implenia has been supporting "Smiling Gecko" in Cambodia with expert knowledge. Every 3 months, Implenia employees from different areas support local residents with their expertise and lend a hand with construction and infrastructure projects.
In the cultural field, Implenia cooperates with the "International Circus Festival YOUNG STAGE Basel", which is committed to promoting young artists. The mission of the organization is to offer a platform and a job exchange to very talented young artists from all over the world, to promote contemporary circus in general, to enable networking and to inspire the next generation (children and young people). The "International Circus Festival YOUNG STAGE Basel" is the largest of its kind in Switzerland and is one of the most important in the industry worldwide.
