Here is the Zeiss display at the IWA Hunting Show in Germany.
Here is the mission statement from Zeiss.
As the sole owner of Carl Zeiss AG (Oberkochen/Germany) and SCHOTT AG (Mainz/Germany), the Carl-Zeiss-Stiftung
(Carl Zeiss Foundation) is an independent entity. It has no private or state owners and is not financed by external capital.
The companies must themselves earn the capital they require to safeguard their future existence and to ensure their ongoing growth. The statutes of the Carl Zeiss-Stiftung form the corporate constitution of the foundation itself and of the two companies contained in it.
The foundation's goals and objectives include:
- Safeguarding the economic base of the two foundation enterprises
- The promotion of science and technology
- The cultivation of precision technology, and of optics and glass technology in particular
- Caring for the social interests of employees.
