Sustainability + responsibility = BayWa r.e.
As a company that is active worldwide in the field of renewable energy, sustainability and responsibility are core aspects of our company identity. We support our clients in rethinking energy and fulfilling their own sustainability goals, and in doing so we make a major contribution to the global energy transition.
But more than this, sustainable action is an integral part of our culture and DNA; this is evidenced in our numerous commitments to a wide range of different projects and initiatives:
"Smart Biogas Network": off-grid with biogas in Tanzania
Biogas is a safe, affordable energy source that is already widely used in Tanzania's off-grid energy supply; for example, to cook at home or for small agricultural operations. As a partner in the "Smart Biogas Network" project, BayWa r.e. is instrumental in keeping plants running and ensuring a reliable source of energy to help to sustain communities and make a significant difference to people’s daily lives.
Charity project for the "All Tribes" school in California, USA
The "All Tribes American Indian Charter School" has dedicated itself to meeting the special socio-economic and cultural needs of the Native American community in San Diego. In addition to designing, developing and erecting a 25-kW solar photovoltaic (PV) system, we have put together teaching material on the topic of renewable energy for students and teachers.

Responsibility towards the disadvantaged
The BayWa Foundation was set up in 1998 to initiate and support both national and international sustainable educational projects in the fields of nutrition and renewable energy. The Foundation is unique because 100 per cent of all donations flow directly into projects thanks to BayWa AG’s generosity in covering all the administration costs. Furthermore, BayWa AG match funds every donation – so every contribution automatically doubles in value.
Educational initiatives play a significant role in all of our projects. We believe that the only way to enable people to help themselves in the long term, and to provide futureproof development opportunities for the disadvantaged, is through education. Find out more.
