The CSR projects our hearts pound a little extra for

Over the years, our employees have passionately turned the money from The Greencarrier Spirit Fund into several successful and rewarding projects. Here are some examples of what we do in the Greencarrier Group.

Taking part in a mentor programme to help people enter the Swedish labour market

In collaboration with Mitt Liv (My Life) in Gothenburg, Sweden three of our staff members have been proud mentors of a programme that helps people with foreign background enter the Swedish labour market. The programme involves meetings, seminars and training opportunities as well as practising of the Swedish language or discussing day-to-day challenges. So far, we have helped two mentees to new jobs relevant to their education. To us, this is really important, as we believe in diversity and inclusion across all aspects of, not only our business, but in society in general.

Shipment of shoes to the Sherpas to take responsibility for the world we live in

In collaboration with our customer Haglöfs, a supplier of outdoor equipment, we sponsor shipments to Kathmandu in Nepal to supply the Sherpas with shoes. The Sherpas help visitors reach their destination climbing the mountains, taking the lead and carrying all the equipment. Their working conditions are really tough and proper footwear is a fundamental thing in that environment. By helping the Sherpas, we do not only transport goods, but take responsibility for the world we live in.

Volunteering and economical support to help victims in disaster areas

When catastrophes appear around the world, we donate money to the Red Cross and their work to help the victims in these disaster areas. For example, in 2013, we donated money to help the victims in the typhoon catastrophe in the Philippines where thousands of people lost their lives and even more lost their homes. Staff in Helsinki also volunteered to raise money. Another example is when we in 2014 supported with money for food parcels to families in Syria. Volunteering and giving economical support is one way for us to show that we are not only citizens of society, but of the world. Together we take a global corporate responsibility.

Funding heart surgeries of poor children in China to give them a future

In Shanghai, China, we support Heart-to-Heart, which is an organisation that helps fund heart surgeries for children who come from very poor families. Many families in rural China are not fully covered by medical benefits and are unable to raise the money for the operation for their child. So far we have helped four children with their surgeries. This is very important to us as the future of these children highly rely on financial resources.

Göteborgs Räddningsmission – Support to homeless in Gothenburg, Sweden

We support the local aid organsiation Göteborgs Räddningsmission (https://www.raddningsmissionen.se/), who are committed to helping the homeless of Gothenburg. This is a long term collaboration which started in 2008 where our employees are also involved in collecting Christmas gifts each year.’

Future Transports – Swedish students innovate future transports

The Future Transport project is initiated by Universeum and carried out each year in collaboration with a number of partners. It is held in Gothenburg, Sweden, and gives students in grade 7 and 8 a chance to be inspired by nature to find new and sustainable ways to move and transport goods. We have been involved in this project as one of several partners from business and academy and have contributed as jury members, experts and exhibitors on the Future Day.

Transporting containers with material to schools and hospitals in Kenya and Gambia

We have shipped a container with material gathered from Swedish donors, from Sweden to the Oloo School in Kenya and another one for Healthwatchers Associates, with material gathered from Swedish donors to a school and hospitals in Gambia.

Water to billions – clean water supply to countries in need

We support the organization Water to Billions, which aims to fight poverty and contribute to the eradication of diseases through improved hygiene primarily by delivering equipment that will help countries and individuals to build long-term water structures.
