We want to help achieve positive socioeconomic change for people and communities. Our role is to provide financial resources, managerial support and guidance to organisations who are already doing a great job in running inspiring and impactful programmes and who need an extra boost.
We fund projects on a multi-year basis to maximise their potential for sustainability and success. In this way, we truly accompany our partners and can measure success and impact on a regular basis, including visits to the field. We like to support projects which encourage communities to take responsibility for their own future and help them reach their full potential.
Until 2016 we sponsored programmes in the field of sustainable development, education & integration, and health. In 2017, we committed our philanthropic endeavours to the fields of Fair and Sustainable Employment and Clean and Safe Supply Chains.
As we look ahead to the coming years, we want to achieve even greater impact. We intend to do so by leveraging our mother company’s expertise in the field of trade and logistics, and by supporting programmes with innovative solutions for the empowerment of local economies, the development of a more inclusive job market and the creation of cleaner and safer logistical systems around which communities live.
