We see sponsorship and supporting activities as an investment in the local community, in terms of living environment, business climate and cultural aspects. Borregaard contributes annually between 4 and 5 million NOK to support measures that benefit both the company and the region.
Our sponsorship strategy has two main pillars:
One covers cultural and sports experiences and activities that help make the city and region more attractive. By involving ourselves in such activities, we contribute to an attractive living environment with a wide range of cultural, sports and leisure activities. This will again contribute to easier recruitment and retainment of employees.
The other area supports measures intended to stimulate young people to understand and become interested
in disciplines important to Borregaard and society, such as nature, science and entrepreneurship. This is
illustrated by our support and cooperation with different educational institutions, the Inspiria Science Centre, the Young Entrepreneurship scheme and the company’s own Knowledge Plant.
