Responsible retailing and community involvement are high on SPAR Austria’s agenda and deeply rooted in its corporate culture. SPAR Austria is actively engaging in CSR initiatives at national, regional and local levels. Here we highlight some recent examples which underline the diversity of the causes being supported.

SPAR Austria and UNIQA support ‘Save the Child’ charity

In early 2017, UNIQA health insurer and SPAR launched a campaign ‘Every move counts’ promoting physical exercise by employees. Upon reaching 50,000 measured kilometres, the two partners would donate €10,000 to children in need. At the end of May 2017, employees of both organisations had already covered 52,968km across 52 different sports and burnt 3.7 million calories; quickly achieving the target. The most popular sports were running, walking and cycling.
