About the Alfred Herrhausen Society
The non-profit Alfred Herrhausen Society (AHS) is the international forum of Deutsche Bank. It seeks traces of the future in the present and brings together people who are committed to the continued existence of civil society. The search for the best approaches for the future must transcend national borders; better solutions can only be found through international dialogue. For this reason, the Alfred Herrhausen Society’s engagement is as global as Deutsche Bank itself, and its work makes up a valuable part of Deutsche Bank’s worldwide commitment to culture and society. The Alfred Herrhausen Society is dedicated to the work of the former Spokesman of the Management Board of Deutsche Bank, Alfred Herrhausen, who was assassinated by terrorists in 1989. Over the course of his life, he was an advocate of the responsibilities that business has toward society.
