Donations and non-commercial sponsorship
Fiskars wants to drive a positive change in the communities we operate in and bring value to our business and brands. Fiskars has defined its philanthropic umbrella, stating the areas where we support local organizations in the communities where we operate through donations:
- Promoting culture and innnovation
- Caring for children and fostering equal opportunities
- Protecting the environment and our diverse natural heritage
We support both global and local projects within these categories. Fiskars’ business units and local sales units choose which local projects to support. Our three community engagement key topics are
Promoting culture and innovation
We cherish and develop craftsmanship and creativity. We foster innovations and technological development of materials and processes in our industry.
Caring for children and fostering equal opportunities
We promote equal access for girls and boys to quality education. We work to empower women and girls: gender equality remains a persistent challenge for countries worldwide and the lack of quality is a major obstacle to sustainable development.
Protecting the environment and our diverse natural heritage
We work to protect biodiversity: tackling deforestation, support for species, habitats, and cultural heritage under a risk due to changing environment. We aim to prevent natural catastrophes and support local communities.
