Greencarrier and Mercy Ships partnership for people in medical need
Recently we had a LinkedIn campaign to raise funds for Mercy Ships operations and to put focus on their life-changing work. Together with our Greencarrier Spirit fund and the engagement of our employees and followers on LinkedIn we managed to raise 15 050 USD to Mercy Ships. Here are some examples of Mercy Ships’s important work and how the donation will make a difference.
Together you’ve added to the sum of our donation!
In conjunction with Mercy Ship’s yearly Cargo Day, where actors within the shipping industry come together to raise money to Mercy Ships operations, Greencarrier pledged to donate the sum of 12 000 USD from the Greencarrier Spirit fund. To get more involvement into the project, and increase the awareness of Mercy Ships, we decided to raise the donated sum of 12 000 USD with 10 USD per like on our Greencarrier LinkedIn-post as well as all the likes we could get from reposts by our network.

Greencarrier and Mercy Ships – Collaboration for a better future
– “Being sustainable in business means that we in Greencarrier care for our company, the people in it and for our customers and partners. But it also means that we take on a larger responsibility, for the society in general and the future health of our planet. Our partnership with Mercy Ships is a way for us to contribute to our sustainability goals. With our core as a global shipping company we are happy to see how ships can be used to help people where people don’t have access to safe medical care.” Says Stefan Björk, founder and owner of Greencarrier.
Our view on sustainability
Each year Greencarrier set aside 1% of our profit to the Greencarrier Spirit Fund, funding local and global initiatives to make improvements for the environment and the society. Our collaboration with Mercy Ships is part of this initiative.
