CONTRIBUTING TO SOCIETY

We deliver value to society in and around Centiro, for the sake of a greater good. We are still a business enterprise but contribute resources, time, money and effort without seeking anything in return. There are three levels where this happens - inside Centiro, in the near environment and further afield.

SOCIAL ENTREPRENEURSHIP

At Centiro, social responsibility is built into our operating system and culture. Well-being, profit and growth are accepted results of a professional enterprise, and in the wake of success, further beneficial and socially responsible initiatives can be undertaken.

IN THE NEAR ENVIRONMENT

We aspire to be an inspirational example of how to build a better workplace. We frequently share our ideas with a growing number of organizations who wish to create better environments for people to work in, and by doing so, building a better society, one small step at a time.

The examples and stories about how Centiro works are now described in several books, leadership training programs and also shared on-site. We have been chosen as leading example and global inspirational reference of a great culture by Franklin Covey, the largest leadership training organization in the world. We work closely with educational facilities and the local community to improve education and living conditions in the places where we operate.

ACTING FOR PEOPLE IN NEED

We contribute and participate with economic resources in several initiatives to help those in need. No one can do everything, but everyone can do something.

Hand In Hand - We finance a village-uplift project in the Hand-In-Hand program, founded by legendary Percy Barnevik, where an Indian village of approximately 250 people receives training and help to become self-sufficient within two years - in healthcare, food, animal care and micro-economics.

UNHCR - UNCHR, the UN Refugee Agency, works for saving lives and protecting rights for refugees. Together with UNCHR, Centiro helps refugees worldwide.

Cancerfonden - Centiro supports cancer research for children and adults through Cancerfonden, the Swedish Cancer Society. Their overall aim is to achieve a higher survival rate and a reduction in the incidence of cancer.

IM - IM (Individual Human Aid) is present in 13 countries around the world. Centiro supports IM’s work for people’s right to education, good health and ability to sustain a life in dignity.

Zelmerlöw & Björkman Foundation - Zelmerlöw & Björkman Foundation was founded by Måns Zelmerlöw, Swedish singer and actor, and Jonas Björkman, former Swedish tennis player. The foundation supports schools in Ethiopia, Kenya and South Africa, and an activity center for homeless boys in Uganda. We contribute to their work by donating a monetary gift in conjunction with our yearly tennis tournament, Centiro Cup.

Destination Gymnasiet - Destination Gymnasiet helps students with low grades to reach high school. Centiro enables Destination Gymnasiet to hire study coaches, who assist the students during weekends.

Kvinnojouren i Lund - Women’s aid in Lund is working for an equal society free from violence. Centiro supports their important work.


We are always ready to help, both as a company and as individuals. In addition to the activities mentioned above, our employees can take part in events arranged by our CSR group. These initiatives are employee driven and aims to help people in our nearest neighborhood. We have arranged language lunches where students from Swedish for immigrants can learn Swedish from our employees, and the collection of Christmas gifts to economically exposed people. Together, we contribute to the society we want to live in.
