Donations and Sponsorships
As part of building relations with local communities and stakeholders, the company contributes to a variety of good causes and projects. As a matter of policy, we do not sponsor political or religious groups.
The company’s sponsorship and donations policy specifies the rules for background checks and assessments for donation and sponsorship contributions. Stiftelsen VI and Karanba are two examples of organizations that Aker Solutions currently supports.
Aker Solutions, together with 10 other companies in the Aker ASA group, supports Stiftelsen VI (English: WE Foundation). This foundation works to create a movement to rectify the imbalance between people with and without disabilities. VI aims to contribute to a higher quality of life, improved health, increased self-efficiency, and more social interaction for people with disabilities. These goals align with Aker Solutions efforts to promote equality, human rights, and local community engagement.
Since 2012, Aker Solutions has supported Karanba Project with financial assistance and participation on its board. Karanba is a Norwegian social project in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Utilizing football as a tool for personal development, Karanba helps a large number of children and young people from slum areas access opportunity and education. The project activities give children a means to express themselves and offer an alternative to passivity and crime. Aker Solutions makes financial donations and provides employee volunteers for various Karanba initiatives.
