Corporate social responsibility

Meeting our responsibilities towards society is part of our corporate culture and our fundamental values. Our commitment extends to all areas of the company and all staff. Becoming jointly involved in activities that serve the common good unites and motivates us. We support various projects, initiatives and associations in the cultural, social and sports area.

Staff and environment

Ensuring fair working conditions for our staff for the benefit of the customers." (Carl Gegenbauer, founder of the parent company Gegenbauer). Velomax follows the parent company's sustainability principles, feels responsible for all of its staff and endeavours to treat its partners and suppliers fairly.

This includes:

  • Being mindful of accessibility, gender equality and diversity

  • Health offers for the staff

  • Complying with the minimum wage regulations, construction site monitoring, closely monitored supplier management

  • Paying social security contributions, no false self-employment

Working groups and charity initiatives

Velomax participates in various sustainability initiatives and working groups. See further down for more respective information.

Sustainability working group

Velomax is a member of the Sustainability Working Group of the Berlin Music Commission, a group of representatives from the fields of business, events and education. This working group provides advice and recommendations on sustainability for all music stakeholders in Berlin and is aimed at music industry players who are willing to actively promote the implementation of sustainability practices in their day-to-day business.

Take A Stand

Velomax supports the European awareness initiative "Take A Stand", which was launched in 2016 by the festival association Yourope. The aim of the initiative is to promote a culture of solidarity and tolerance, particularly at festivals and concerts, and thus to establish this in society as a whole in the long term. "Take A Stand" wants to set accents and promote inclusion and dialogue and against fear and exclusion. However, the "Take A Stand" initiative is not only aimed at music enthusiasts, but at everyone!

Viva con Agua

Velomax supports Viva con Agua de Sankt Pauli e.V. at sporting events and concerts. Here, visitors can easily do good by donating their reusable cups instead of returning them themselves. The goals of the international and non-profit association are to improve drinking water supplies, provide access to clean drinking water for all, and raise awareness of the global issue of water among all people.

You can easily recognize the supporters of Viva con Agua: they are standing next to a deposit garbage ton with a Viva con Agua flag.


Velomax supports atmosfair, a climate protection organization with the goal of offsetting greenhouse gases through renewable energies. Velomax compensates for its generated CO₂ emissions via atmosfair. Among other things, this benefits the support of farming families in Nepal.

Berliner Schulpate

Since 2023, we have been volunteering with Berliner Schulpate gGmbH. Berliner Schulpate has recognized that children are no longer familiar with many professions and has set the goal to change this. They enable elementary school students in grades 4 to 6 to get to know different professions. As part of the program "Career Adventure," elementary school students meet with role models from various professions and receive practical, child-friendly insights into diverse career fields.

We are fond of this idea, which is why we are participating. We are inviting fifth and sixth graders to visit the Max-Schmeling-Halle. During the visit, they can certainly take a behind-the-scenes look, but our main focus is to introduce the students to the numerous professions that are hidden behind the operation of such a venue.

This represents an initial preparatory step in the process of their future career exploration during secondary school and also an early investment in nurturing new talent.
