We want to share our success with the local community by supporting important initiatives and organizations and the people who are working to make a difference.
Memberships and commitments
Berlin Partner operates a unique network of over 270 renowned business enterprises based in Berlin and is largely responsible for its burgeoning international appeal. Berlin is the choice location of an increasing number of people and businesses. Widely hyped as a great place to live and work, the city has become a hugely attractive international location, a hotspot for creative professionals, start-ups and technology and science organizations. Berlin Partner has played a major role in this success story by providing a wide range of development and consulting services for companies and individuals wishing to move to Berlin.
Berlin Partner makes "Berlin easy for business".
As a Berlin Partner, ZIEHER sponsors the Welcome Package with office solutions for businesses wanting to locate in Berlin. These businesses can get started in no time with a reduced ZIEHER office package, a special offer which benefits all parties – collaboration in the best sense of the word! Many national and international corporate customers have already benefited from the Berlin Partner business solutions in their start-up phase.
ZIEHER has also been a sponsor of the Berliner Tafel for many years. The Berliner Tafel is one of Berlin's most successful social welfare initiatives that has long since spread beyond the city limits and become a medium-sized organization. By committing to this initiative, we want to share our success with people who live in the city and need help to afford a healthy diet.
Every day, Berliner Tafel trucks pick up food from a total of 600 supermarkets, which is then sorted and distributed among social welfare institutions and individuals in need. Elderly people who only have a small pension or basic income support, the unemployed or low-wage workers often save money on food. Food donations help them and their children enjoy regular, healthy meals, and some might even be able to use the money saved to treat their children or grandchildren with something like a trip to the zoo.
Apart from helping people in need, the Berliner Tafel also raises public awareness on the crime of wasting food, and makes discount supermarkets appreciate the value of allegedly spoiled goods.
Zieher GmbH started out as a service provider based in Joachimsthaler Strasse and has since moved round the corner to the grand old boulevard Kurfürstendamm. Zieher GmbH thus feels a particular attachment and sense of responsibility for the fortunes of the western part of the city – the City West.
AG City (Working Group City) has set itself the task of developing and preserving the unique diversity of Kurfürstendamm and surroundings with its time-honored mix of residential, cultural and commercial uses. The world-famous shopping boulevard is fast regaining popularity among Berliners, newcomers, visitors and companies alike. The eye-catching upward trend is reflected in the many large building projects in progress around Zoologischer Garten and openings of big brand stores, designer labels and offices of businesses new to Berlin.
AG City is working to attain and maintain a dynamic, modern and prosperous City West with numerous initiatives, events and networking activities in cooperation with its members, cultural managers, the chambers of commerce, industry and trade and public authorities. Hand in hand with local businesses and retailers, AG City ensures that the boulevard maintains its inviting and cultivated appearance.
