Our heart beats for technological progress and innovation - wanting to change the world with passion and entrepreneurial courage. Therefore we invest own capital in new business models and ambitious growth companies.
With investments in ambitious, high-growth companies we support innovation. Simultaneously, we invest in new business models. Across sectors, approachable and fair.
We implement, review, reflect and adapt. This enables us to achieve our ambitious goals and keep our promises.
We set ourselves ambitious and yet realistic goals. Instead of deriving recommendations for actions we act. Fast, uncomplicated and honest. Therefore, we use our comprehensive knowledge and unconventional measures.
We create positive change with convincing and talented people. As a provider of capital and innovation, we generate sustainable growth. Together we go beyond normal. We’re not just talking, we tackle it.
We as blueworld.group combine progress and sustainability in an economic, ecological and social dimension with the aim of making our wonderful world even more worth living for future generations.
Together with pioneering companies and their executives we work to create outstanding performance as well as real and sustainable value.
As blueworld.group we see it as our responsibility to clearly express our vision and mission. We’re not just talking, we tackle it. We do not derive any recommendations for action, we act.
Specifically, this is reflected in our long-term corporate goals.
In order to create long-term values, it is essential to operate on a sustainable basis. Of course, we follow the intention of making profit and increasing the value of our investments. This is the only way we can build the bridge to ecologically and socially sustainable economic growth.
From an ecological perspective, our goals are clear: Just as the blueworld.group is already climate-neutral in partnership with natureOffice, we want each of our companies to be climate-neutral by 2025. As a means to an end, we require the efficient and careful use of all resources. We also sensitize our partners to the use of emission-free mobility offers and energy sources. The incentives for all employees to use public transport are just as much part of our required spectrum as the switch to green electricity providers and compensation payments for essential greenhouse gas emissions..
We are also committed to our region and promote regional society and its companies. We are not counting every euro when it comes to finding the right partner to fulfill our obligations. We always meet employees, suppliers and customers on an equal footing. We live equality. That is why we strive for a balanced women’s quota for ourselves and our investments – across all positions and areas of responsibility. We make no distinction between men and women, pay the same salaries, give the same career paths and opportunities to reconcile work and family. Nothing is placed above our responsibility for our employees. That is why we strive for an above-average employee satisfaction of at least 90%*. We pursue this goal as an employer and at the same time make it a claim on our companies.

Climate-neutral into the future
We see it as our responsibility to actively shape the world of tomorrow and to have a positive impact. In this section, we would like to regularly give you an insight into achieved goals, status updates and current topics.
We achieved one of our big goals! In partnership with natureOffice, we as blueworld.group are climate-neutral and offset the emissions that arise. We support Project Togo, which fulfills 12 of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations. The project tackles the causes of the problems and focuses thereby on the areas of education, jobs, energy, water and health. We report more about Project Togo here.
We are also in close contact with our portfolio companies on the subject of climate neutrality in order to jointly go the way towards a climate-neutral future in the midterm.
Accept the status quo?
No way! We question actions, incidents, ourselves. Every day. To get a little better every day. This leads to discussions about things like soap, toilet paper, meat consumption, mobility. And exactly these discussions help us to sharpen our view.
In order to promote exchange and to better understand the satisfaction and needs of our employees, we have introduced regular employee surveys on various topics. In addition to a regular exchange of personal feedback, we have set up a feedback platform on which feedback can also be provided anonymously.
Our morning starts with a team stand-up – daily. A platform that we introduced during the lockdown, in times of home office and spatial separation, in order to promote team cohesion, exchange and continuity. The format is constantly evolving and we talk about weekly goals, highlights, but also mistakes and the respective lessons learned from them. Because in addition to an open feedback culture, it is the constructive handling of mistakes that allows us to grow and improve.
Education as the central basis
Over here, access to education is too often taken as (almost) self-evident, but unfortunately this does not reflect reality at all. We want to start right here and support corresponding projects. That is why we are forcing national and international partnerships to promote sustainable projects, for example in the education sector or integration. For us education is the greatest lever for future-oriented development that offers everyone - as an individual and as part of society - countless opportunities.
Lifelong learning and further training are essential for us. In addition to internal and external training measures, our 5-minute sessions, for example, have become an integral part of our stand-ups every week, in which a topic of personal choice is presented and then discussed openly in our team.
We have big visions and think broadly, also when it comes to sustainability. For us, however, this is not a process that can ever be completed; rather, we are concerned with every single step. Towards a more sustainable and even more livable world.
