Community involvement and sponsoring
PostNord is actively involved in the communities in which it operates. Efforts are concentrated on a few larger projects, preferably in the areas of sports and culture and the support of children and young people.
In this way, the group obtains long-term continuity and mutual benefit from our collaborations. Some of PostNord’s current collaborations:
Many PostNord employees use bicycles in their daily work. In Denmark, for example, up to 70% of letters are delivered by mail carriers on bicycles. It is therefore natural for PostNord to promote cycling through cooperation with the Danish Cycling Union and the Swedish Cycling Association. Through this collaboration, the group promotes the expansion of cycling and supports a popular sport that is growing in popularity, a sport that also benefits overall health and the environment.
Soccer is widely popular. Hundreds of thousands of people – participants and spectators alike – are passionate about the sport. In Sweden PostNord is a proud sponsor of both the women's and men's national soccer team in cooperation with the Swedish Soccer Association. We also support the Swedish women’s soccer league
In Norway we are cooperating with the Norwegian Soccer Association where we have our own soccer league.(PostNord Ligaen) in second division for men
The August prize
The written word is becoming increasingly important in the digital world. PostNord wants to inspire everyone to read and write more. Considering the clear link between the written letter and the group’s operations, Posten has partnered with the August Prize, Sweden’s biggest literature prize after the Nobel Prize.
Every year Post Denmark and Posten issue special stamps, where part of the price goes to selected non-profit organizations that are selected for one year at a time. The selected organizations are highly reputed and work in the areas of aid, health or the environment. The money collected in 2013 went to SOS Children’s Villages in Sweden and Save the Children in Denmark.
Julemærkefonden and Mentor
PostNord is committed to helping children and young people in need of support. In Denmark the group supports the Julemærkefonden in its work to help vulnerable children achieve good self-esteem. In Sweden the group works with the Mentor Foundation, which works closely with the business community to encourage young people to reject violence and drugs.
Field partner to Doctors Without Borders
Since December 2016 we provide support to the organization Doctors Without Borders (Médecins Sans Frontières) by contributing financially to its work. Doctors Without Borders is an international medical humanitarian organization that saves lives and helps people who are suffering and in distress. It runs projects in over 60 countries around the world.
In addition to these efforts, PostNord has participated in various regional, national and international initiatives for sustainable development, climate issues and service and accessibility issues.
