Our commitment to the community

Projects to promote stability and development

As an employer, taxpayer and active participant in economic life, we help to drive regional value creation at our locations. We are also committed to topics and projects that are relevant to the stability and development of the communities.

We have defined clear criteria to serve as guidance in the assessment of sponsorship and social commitments.

Exclusive partner of the History Laboratory

Vontobel is the exclusive partner of the History Laboratory, a project of the Swiss National Museum. In this world of growing complexity, our everyday life is marked by diversity and variety. With its "History Laboratory" project, the Swiss National Museum addresses the increasing diversity in society. The participating students delve into their past, searching for their own identity. In this context, they focus on questions such as: Where do I come from? Where does my family come from? What kind of society do I live in? How do people in Switzerland live alongside each other? How has Switzerland developed into the country I now live in? Vontobel is supporting the History Laboratory as exclusive partner.
