CSR projects at the heart of our company
Together with WeForest, we’ve planted over 70,000 trees in Brazil and Zambia. However, this project is about much more than just planting trees for a greener future. Based on corporate and scientific partnerships with young entrepreneurs, local scientists and local communities, the project helps to reduce poverty by generating income for local people through activities like beekeeping or setting up irrigation systems.
We are also extremely proud of our partnership with Agoria Solar Team. This extraordinary team of students won the World Solar Challenge in their own vehicle, engineered and built to push the limits of technological innovation powered by solar energy. The race showcases the remarkable possibilities of advanced alternative automotive technology. The innovations used by the teams are applied in electric cars, which makes the race significant for the promotion of vehicles powered by alternative fuels.
The fantastic ‘SuperKrachtig Lekker’: “Energy Suppliers for Super Heroes” project is a story of strong entrepreneurial mothers who soften the harsh reality for children (and their families) who are fighting cancer or a life-threatening illness. These women work to ease the burden on families who have more than enough to cope with. The #peopleofdelaware raised money for the construction of a kitchen at the Children’s Hematology, Oncology and Stem Cell Transplantation Department (pediatric cancer department) at Ghent University Hospital.
