Our work with and through associations
One of the company’s core values is the importance of clubs and associations in urban development. That’s why Akeab supports youth associations in the hopes of giving more young people, girls and boys, the opportunity for development and a sense of safety. To ensure that money is spent on the right things, Akeab has clearly set goals linked to the UN’s global goals for sustainable development.
This affiliation with association life is emphasized by the “staff program” that exists to support the local associations, where employees can apply for support for their own particular club, team, or association’s activities.
Sustainability work is about knowledge and commitment. In business, we often end up in industry-related contexts where we exchange common experiences. If you manage to organize an association and run it based on sound values, it becomes a massive opportunity to reduce the opportunity costs in society, which in turn leads to healthier, happier children who make their parents healthier and happier in return. All of the sustainability work we do must be carried out by our most important resource: people. Participation in associations creates a context where people can feel good about their personal lives, which in turn supports the well-being of our employees and a more prosperous business.
