At a ceremony on 26 October 2023, Thomas Strobl, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of the Interior, Digitalisation and Municipalities of Baden-Württemberg, distinguished Karl Knauer – a specialist for innovative packaging, promotional products and present packages made of cardboard, corrugated cardboard and paper – as a “volunteer-friendly employer for civil protection.” With this prize, which is awarded for five years, the state of Baden-Württemberg recognises the commitment of the Biberach-based family business, which supports its employees in carrying out voluntary work, for example for the DLRG (German Water Rescue Association), the DRK (German Red Cross), THW (Technical Assistance Organisation) and volunteer fire departments. Karl Knauer was nominated for the award by the Volunteer Fire Department of the town of Biberach/Baden, in which eight colleagues from the Karl Knauer team are committed to good causes. “This distinction fills us with great joy and encourages us to continue to support our employees with their volunteer work”, says Stefanie Wieckenberg, managing director of Karl Knauer KG. “Those who have team members who are committed to good causes on a voluntary basis can count themselves lucky, because they make a valuable contribution to social cohesion both inside and outside a company. And that is more important than ever nowadays.”
