Ekokem wants to promote sustainable development through environmental awareness. We seek to cooperate with partners whose activities are considered to have the greatest impact. In recent years, we have been cooperating on environmental awareness projects with the Finnish Association for Nature Conservation (FANC).
Ekokem wishes to bring well-being to its sites. Ekokem takes part in the activities of local communities by supporting the environmental education of children, the voluntary helping of families with children, and local sports, nature conservation and culture. Ekokem does not support, directly or indirectly, political activities, professional sports or activities that would cause harm to the environment.
Ekokem also attempts to seek and create non-financial forms of cooperation with local communities.
“The environmental education work for children and youth is an essential part of the comprehensive national work carried out by the Finnish Association for Nature Conservation. Building a lifelong relationship with nature starts early in the childhood through positive and exciting activities in nature. At Ekokem, the importance of environmental education has been understood very well. The company has provided the Finnish Association for Nature Conservation with the financial means to carry out memorable Fairytale Path events of which hundreds of families have enjoyed so far. During the last years, Ekokem has become an important partner for FANC. In addition to the Fairytale Path concept, Ekokem’s support has allowed to raise awareness about the Finnish Nature Day.”
