R+V Seguros Ltda.
The R+V Versicherung cooperative celebrates its 100th anniversary and on this occasion launches the Together Mission. The goal is to make the world a little better. There are numerous campaigns throughout Germany throughout the year.
For its 100th birthday in 2022, R+V wants to give something back to society. For this reason, the insurer of the cooperative financial network Volksbanken Raiffeisenbanken has created the Mission Together: R+V will travel through Germany with a specially designed tiny house and promote projects that offer solutions to the fundamental problems of our time.
“We can look back on 100 years of community, cooperation and support,” says R+V CEO Norbert Rollinger. “But we are looking to the future. Because we want to shape the future together: with the Together mission. We are providing 1.6 million euros to support social and sustainable projects. And we are still looking for projects!”
Send your projects to www.mission-miteinander.de
Associations and non-profit organizations, as well as individuals, can list their future projects with a brief description on the website. www.mission-miteinander.de Deliver. These can be existing projects or specific ideas. The only important thing is that the projects must be aligned with the United Nations sustainability goals (UN Sustainable Development Goals) and the funding criteria of the R+V FOUNDATION and come from one of these five thematic areas:
- social justice
- Economy and Technology
- Environmental and climate protection
At the beginning of the summer, around 16,000 R+V employees select the projects that will receive financial support as part of MissionTogether. The Tiny House will then go into some of the projects and introduce them in more detail.
Weekly live broadcasts and future festival in September
The Tiny House will be on tour from mid-January and will visit so-called future creators throughout Germany: people who help shape our future with their ideas. Socially relevant topics are addressed in weekly discussion rounds. The events will be broadcast live through the R+V social networks.
The conclusion and highlight of the celebrations for 100 years of R+V is the Future Festival, which takes place on September 15 and 16 at the RMCC Congress Center in Wiesbaden. Recognized experts and select MissionTogether participants will be there. At the Future Festival there is plenty of room to deepen ideas and develop new ones in conferences, workshops and discussion panels. A future study provides insights into life in the year 2040.
100 year success story
100 years of R+V – this is a German success story: from a small agricultural insurance cooperative to one of the country’s leading insurance companies. Around nine million customers today rely on R+V’s services. With around 16,000 employees, R+V Versicherung is not only a major employer nationwide, but also the largest private employer in Wiesbaden. The headquarters of the company with around 6,000 employees is located in the state capital of Hesse.
Since its foundation on September 15, 1922 in Berlin, at that time still under the “Raiffeisen” brand, R+V has for decades developed into one of the leading German universal insurers. Its roots are in the cooperative organization. R+V is thus shaped by the pioneering ideas of the social reformers Friedrich Wilhelm Raiffeisen (1818-1888) and Hermann Schulze-Delitzsch (1808-1883). Its later history is closely connected with the development of Volksbanken and Raiffeisenbanken in Germany, whose initials can be found in the company name.
I claim “You are not alone”.
R+V’s values - solid, cooperative, inspiring – are more relevant today than ever. Being close to people was and is the concern of R+V. Therefore, the promise is not without reason: “You are not alone.”
