Committed to sustainability
The notion of diligent business conduct has always been deeply rooted at all levels of our company. As we have done for 80 years now, we are following a thoughtful and non-dogmatic approach encompassing all aspects of sustainability.
RAHN’s socio-economic impact is assessed annually, goals are defined, actions implemented and the result of such actions are measured and reported in
a transparent manner.
The Rahn Foundation was established in 2003 with starting capital of
CHF 250,000 to mark the 70th birthday of Hans Konrad Rahn. The Foundation's organisational capital currently amounts to some CHF 2.6 million.
The Rahn Kulturfonds is funded by generous financial contributions from RAHN AG.
It was founded to promote and award outstanding students of Swiss music academies. Hence, every second year Rahn Kulturfonds is organising the competition
Rahn Musikpreis. Rahn Kulturfonds also awards scholarships and lends instruments to distinguished young musicians. Furthermore, institutions that aim to promote classical music of all epochs will be supported.
The Rahn Foundation (former Hans Konrad Rahn Foundation) was established in 2003 with starting capital of CHF 250,000 to mark the 70th birthday of Hans Konrad Rahn. The Foundation's organisational capital currently amounts to some CHF 2.6 million.
The Foundation continues the mission of the Rahn relief fund, which for decades supported social projects in the Zurich region and also made donations to help disaster victims in both Switzerland and other countries.
The Foundation receives a share of the cash flow of RAHN AG each year. This is supplemented by generous donations from the Rahn family and other benefactors.
On this basis, our Foundation will be able to continue its support activities in the coming years in the proven way.
In 2022, the Foundation supported various social institutions to the
total sum of CHF 283,000 (2021: CHF 296,000).
