Melitta signs "Rise Ahead Pledge" at World Economic Forum in Davos




Today, at the World Economic Forum's Annual Meeting 2024, the Melitta Group stands united with the Schwab Foundation's Global Alliance for Social Entrepreneurship and the World Economic Forum in a commitment that brings together the power of businesses in support of the social economy. As one of more than a dozen early signatories of the Rise Ahead Pledge, we commit to increase our engagement in social innovation by 2030. This is not just a promise; it is a call to action for the private sector to actively participate in shaping a world that is just, sustainable, and equitable.


"Social Business and Innovation are important pillars of the Melitta Group transformation process. We are looking forward to the joint engagement with the Schwab Global Alliance for Social Entrepreneurship and the other signatories" – Katharina Roehrig, Managing Director Communication & Sustainability Melitta Group.


The pledge is complemented by the Corporate Social Innovation Compass, a pivotal report that lays out a roadmap for corporate engagement in social innovation. It is an invaluable resource for companies like ours to understand and implement best practices in social entrepreneurship. 

As we embark on this journey, our focus is clear: to bring together the brightest minds and the most innovative solutions to address global challenges. We do not just invest in ideas; we invest in the future. Join us in making a difference.
