Social Responsibility


Sustainability and commitment

Corporate social responsibility is not just a phrase of the moment for Spielwarenmesse eG, but a requirement. We have voluntarily committed ourselves to acting in a socially responsible and sustainable manner. That is why Spielwarenmesse eG’s Corporate Sustainability team is always coming up with new approaches for the responsible use of our environmental resources. For example, FSC-certified paper is used for all of our print materials.


Social projects

Spielwarenmesse eG has been strongly committed to children in particular for years. We are supported in this by Spielwarenmesse® exhibitors, who can donate some of their products for a good cause on the last day of the trade fair. After the trade fair, we organise for the donations to be handed over in cooperation with SOS Children’s Villages (SOS-Kinderdorf e.V.). Some of the donations also go to nurseries and schools as well as social institutions.


Commitment to the culture of games

Nuremberg has been home to the German Games Archive, a unique collection of games from all over the world, since 2010. Spielwarenmesse eG makes its knowledge and networks available to support the running of the archive. As a member of the Advisory Board, we actively lobby for the archive to be expanded into a games centre.
