Social commitment

Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) has become an integral part of our daily work. This means that with your orders you don’t just support CB Multilingual – you also support organisations that are important to us and really make a difference.

At CB Multilingual, we are committed to helping our customers with their needs. But we are equally passionate about helping the people in our region who need help. And we prefer to do so via the direct route – such as by supporting Sozialwerke Pfarrer Sieber in Zurich, which assists people in difficult situations, looks after them and helps them get back on track, regardless of their religion, social status or political orientation.

However, we don’t just want to make a difference locally, but globally as well. Through small actions in our work and private lives, we support the UN’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals to make our world a better place for everyone.
