fwp is committed to sustainability

Vienna, June 2019. For a better future: Fellner Wratzfeld & Partner (fwp) continues to excel with their inspiring foresight – not only in terms of sustainable legal advice. With their current corporate social responsibility initiative – namely the support of “MIËLO“ and a donation to the non-profit organisation “Grow Together” – the renowned law firm stands up for the environment and for society.

fwp decided to support bee-friendly and sustainable honey production in Austria’s Tullnerfeld and Waldviertel region and, as partner of MIËLO, helps promoting organically farmed meadows and farmland. In this context, farmers in the surrounding areas who do not use any pesticides and fertilizers receive funding.

“Sustainable foresighted solutions are the basis of our long-standing success as legal advisors, and it is the same approach we follow in terms of our social responsibility. For this reason, the entire team of fwp strongly supports the MIËLO project, thus making an important contribution to protecting Austria’s biodiversity”, emphasises fwp partner Markus Fellner.

But that is not all: fwp goes one step further and donates a substantial amount of the acquired MIËLO honey to “Grow Together”. The non-profit organisation supports and helps parents with infants in difficult life situations. Thanks to intensive, long-term care focused on bonding and family relationships and following child protection guidelines, it is ensured that the children concerned profit from the best possible health and development opportunities, and that parents are supported in gradually finding their way back to a self-sufficient life.  Board member Katharina Beitl is pleased to state that “sustainable foresighted solutions are a particularly beautiful principle for fwp to follow which, at the same time, correspond to the mission of Grow Together”. Katharina Kruppa, pediatrician and psychotherapist, and head of Grow Together, adds: “We appreciate the generous donation from fwp, which not only covers our families‘ annual requirement for honey but also helps us to promote and communicate the sustainable change achieved by Grow Together”.
