Achieving Big Things Together Achieving Big Things Together



In May 2015 420 Commerz Real employees renovated the Albrecht-Dürer-Friedensschule in Wiesbaden. Their efforts were honoured on 25 February 2016 with one of 30 doves of peace from the artist Richard Hillinger handed to three representatives of the Commerz Real by the school’s principle Anna Marx.

Around 420 employees – after all 60 percent of the whole Commerz-Real team – participated in the renovation. Together they achieved 3,200 working hours. During this time 19 classrooms were renovated, hallways and outdoor areas were whipped into shape and one appliance room was built. The workings of the Commerz Real team were coordinated by 80 students of the Albrecht-Dürer-Friedensschule.

The idea of a dove of peace comes from an initiative of the artist Richard Hillinger and former Federal President Roman Herzog. In total, there are only 30 peace doves worldwide, which have been handed to important public figures as well as peace initiatives and human rights organisations.
