At ALTIUS, we are committed to conducting our business in a way that is consistent with our values. Our corporate social responsibility programme includes the following initiatives:
Cunina wants to improve the access to and the quality of primary and secondary education in seven partner countries (Brazil, the Philippines, Haiti, Nepal, Uganda, South Africa and Peru), irrespective of political, religious and social beliefs. We do this through personal sponsorships and the realisation of educational projects. Cunina strongly believes that education is the key to a better future.
ALTIUS, Tiberghien and other Brussels based law firms join together as a single team to participate in the annual Brussels 20km running event. The goal in 2018 was to support and raise funds for charity partner Infirmiers de rue asbl (IDR - Street Nurses). Their main goal is eradicating homelessness by acting as an intermediary to restore ties between between people living in great uncertainty, their environment and health services.
ALTIUS’ office is located in the Tour & Taxis site in Brussels; more specifically, in the prestigious Royal Depot, which is managed by an eco-dynamic company. The Royal Depot has been rewarded for its efforts and progress in various eco-friendly measures and obtained its Ecodynamic Charter first star from Brussels Environment.
When we print, we think about the environment. Therefore, we rely on the ecological work produced by L Capitan. All its print works show the importance of being sustainable. The paper used by L Capitan holds a FSC®- or PEFC™-label, which means it comes from sustainably-managed forests and biological ink is pressed on the paper. The energy needed for the printing machines is produced from solar panels and heat sources. All rubish is sorted, collected and recycled.
ALTIUS supports the Olivia Fund (previously named Olivia Hendrickx research fund), an association supporting scientific research in innovative therapies against cancer in Belgium.
It's become a tradition for the Studio Brussel radio station to turn the last week before Christmas into a week full of warmth and charity thanks to its solidarity initiative, “Music For Life - De Warmste Week”. This week mobilises social support for a number of selected charities. Anyone can support their selected charity by doing a good deed. ALTIUS is delighted to announce its support for Cunina, a Belgian development organisation with an international focus. Cunina believes education is the key to a better future, as does ALTIUS.
ALTIUS has become a friend of Ancienne Belgique (AB), one of the most established musical institutions in Brussels and Belgium. Thanks to this friendship, we are able to connect with people in the entertainment industry and collaborate further in this field.
This wonderful charity supports projects providing psychosocial care and guidance of young victims of political, ethnic or sexual violence in the Central African Republic.
ALTIUS Annual Christmas Initiative 2019
Each year at Christmas time, there are some additional charities that we like to support. This year, we have helped three beautiful organisations: Kinderarmoedefonds, Kinderkankerfonds and vzw totaal.
- Did you know that 1 in 7 children in Flanders are born into a disadvantaged family? This means that around 130,000 children receive fewer opportunities from day one. And this number increases every year. This is why Kinderarmoedefonds supports innovative and long-term projects that fight against the exclusion of disadvantaged children and their families.
- Ever since 1988, Kinderkankerfonds has been supporting families, psychologically and financially, by helping hospital wards through supplying them with extra materials and employees, and financing scientific research. Up until 1988, there was no government funding whatsoever for a decent psychological ‘safety net’. Thanks to Kinderkankerfonds, this void has been filled.
- The three founders of vzw totaal (Tine, Geertrui and Lore) have been working as language teachers or speech therapists for over 10 years. Due to this experience, they saw the need for a proper network around and a solution for children with language development disorders and for their relatives. This is why this charity was started.
