Commitment + Region

BÜFA supports various institutions and projects in the region. As a responsible chemical company with three strategic fields of action –digitization, innovation and sustainability – we promote different areas of our society.

Sustainable element "new chemistry": regional commitment

In 2019, the BÜFA funding concept, which makes a constant contribution to the common good of Oldenburg and the region, was revised. It also offers the opportunity to further increase acceptance and trust in the chemical industry. BÜFA supports both with donations and with sponsoring measures. The focus is mainly on regional projects, events, associations, initiatives as well as residents or neighborhoods in the vicinity of the locations.

BÜFA pursues its funding priorities in the following areas:

• Arts and culture,

• Education, particularly at pre-school, school and higher education level, with a focus on science and digitalization, innovation and sustainability

• Social affairs, in particular the promotion of social integration and inclusion

• Sport, especially with a high promotional impact for the city, state and across the nation

Donation recipients include:

• schools, kindergartens, colleges or universities

• non-profit organisations and initiatives, associations and institutions
