VfL Wolfsburg wins German Award for Excellence 2015 with Muuvit!
Recognition for nationwide social engagement
Explaining their choice of winner for the German Award for Excellence 2015, the certification company DQS highlighted the outstanding proactive engagement of the Bundesliga football club VfL Wolfsburg. Wolfsburg’s efforts had focused on important issues such as education, health and integration, and its success, said the jury, is confirmed by thriving projects like the Muuvit programme, of which VfL’s sporting director, Klaus Allofs, is the patron.
DQS presented the awards in recognition of corporate sustainability work. This year’s winners included Muuvit’s partner, VfL Wolfsburg, who scooped the award for Society Engagement National. Accepting the award on behalf of the CSR department was Nico Briskorn, head of department and responsible for VfL’s “gemeinsam bewegen” (“move together”) initiative.
Long term impact with Muuvit!
