Plan International receives Greencarrier’s Christmas Donation 2021

By Åsa Leander, December 13, 2021
The yearly Christmas donation is one of Greencarrier's contributions to a sustainable society. This year our donation goes to Plan International and their work to give girls education.

As a result of the pandemic, 100 million children are at risk of losing their education. As many as 130 million girls worldwide do not go to school. When the pandemic is over, an additional 20 million girls are estimated to be without education.

– “The most important Christmas gift you can give is to educate all girls around the world. When girls are allowed to go to school, poverty decreases and gender equality increases. Thanks to Greencarrier’s contribution, we will remove the obstacles that stand in the way of girls’ education. We continue to contribute to safe and secure schools, train teachers and work to change the view of girls so that education is accessible to everyone!”, says Mariann Eriksson, Secretary-General, Plan International Sweden.

– “Way too many girls around the world are undervalued, underestimated and treated with less respect simply because they are girls, and for me this is incomprehensible and definitely not the way forward for a sustainable future. I am very happy that we in Greencarrier, through our partnership with Plan International, can make a difference and contribute to giving more girls the knowledge and power they deserve.” Says Stefan Björk, Founder & Chairman of the Board, Greencarrier.

Caring for people, planet and business

The yearly Christmas donation is part of our work with the Greencarrier Spirit, and part of our way of giving back to the society and planet via the Greencarrier Spirit fund. In the fund we set aside 1% of our profit each year for projects within sustainability. Both global projects and local projects that our employees can initiate.
