A medical professional wearing a scrub cap and mask with the "Mercy Ships" logo is standing beside a bed and talking to a patient. The patient is lying in bed, appearing attentive to the doctor, with a bandage on their neck and an IV line in their arm. The setting suggests a hospital room with a privacy curtain in the background.

We have a proud history of taking a social responsibility in our local communities

Through our CSR fund, Greencarrier Spirit Fund, we have a proud history of taking a social responsibility in our local communities. Every year, we allocate 1% of the Group’s profit to various CSR related projects. Our colleagues are then able to apply to the fund with a project, or an organisation, that they think could use the help of Greencarrier. This allows us to have committed employees, as well as have a broad spread on our CSR projects. We also allocated parts of the funds for partnerships, as we strive to work with long-term commitments.

Our key partners

Solvatten is a social enterprise based in Sweden, and we have one mission: to provide people living in developing countries with safe and hot water in a portable, environmentally friendly way. Solvatten does this through their ingenious inventions that is a portable water canister that harvest the UV-light from the sun to purify the water to be safe to consume. Not only does a Solvatten unit help with access to safe water, but the social benefits are multifold; less emissions, more hours to education, less sick days just to name a few.
