This strategic giving and donations program, which we have had actively running since 2018 has been focusing on listening to local people and encouraging our own employees to play an active role in their own neighborhoods. Since 2018 we have asked all our coworkers to propose community projects or good causes for this program.
The selected projects have various targets, address different kinds of challenges but have a wider geographical impact. In 2020 the selected projects focused on United Nations Sustainable Development Goals 5 (Gender Equality) and 6 (Clean Water and Sanitation).
