Responsibility, Opportunity and Optimism


SEKEM was founded with the idea of sustainable development and caring for the community. The vision that brought Dr. Ibrahim Abouleish to dig the first well in the vast desert land still drives SEKEM’s business approach. Our holistic vision, mission and values serve as a compass which guides us in our everyday work in all SEKEM companies and institutions.

SEKEM is home currently to about 2000 employees, yet following the standards and value of an Economy of Love; our responsibility extends to more than just our employees. We also want to cooperate transparently and responsibly with our farmers, traders and customers beyond – especially now, in the context of the current health and economic challenges.

The promotion of an integrative approach in medicine and for health is one of the goals of the SEKEM vision for 2057 and a focus topic for this year. This means that we not only take our responsibility very seriously in regard to the current global health problem, but at the same time we are working on the contents of a holistic understanding of what health means for people, beyond not falling sick.
