We are thrilled to share our journey and partnership with 1% for the Planet.

This global initiative aligns with our core values, inspiring us and others to support environmental solutions through annual memberships and everyday actions.

Our contributions have significantly impacted the environment since we began our alliance with 1% for the Planet in 2016. By donating more than 5 million SEK, we have directly supported the vital work of our nonprofit partners.
