Donations to local charities

In 2022, consumers in Sweden and the UK were invited to nominate charities who make a difference in their local communities to receive support from Kavli Trust.

“The funds are allocated from Kavli Trust to the Kavli companies, which then distribute them to charitable, local causes in their respective
countries,’’ says General Manager of Kavli Trust, Inger Elise Iversen.

“We get a lot of great feedback from committed consumers who say that they choose Kavli products as often as they can, because they know that all the profits go to good causes.”

“It is thanks to everyone who buys products from our companies that we have profits to distribute, and we are happy to involve consumers in deciding the causes,’’ says Iversen.

Most of Kavli Trust’s funds are distributed by Kavli Trust’s administration which finds projects in accordance with the allocation strategy, through outreach activities involving professional communities and organisations.

In all three countries, grocery stores, traditional media and social media are used in a creative and engaging way to invite consumers to submit their nominations.
