At Informationsteknik, it is important for us that we engage in and take social responsibility for how we influence the society in which we work. Environmentally, economically and socially. We do this in different ways and for different organizations, but the common thread is our desire to support children and young people.
We support Generation Pep’s vision – that all children and youngsters should have the opportunity and desire to live an active and healthy life. Today, only three out of ten youngsters get the recommended amount of physical activity of 60 minutes a day and only one in ten eat enough vegetables, fruits and berries. We want to help to change this! Together we can create a movement for better health!
Offsetting our carbon footprint
We offset all our business travel by car and air. Carbon offsetting means that greenhouse gas emissions caused by a company’s travel are compensated by the fact that carbon dioxide is reduced somewhere else in the world. The Vi Agroforestry project for climate compensation called “Trees give Life” and is carried out in the Cager region of Western Tanzania, where sustainable farming methods are developed for trees and crops. Every tree that is planted is vital. The trees improve the climate and that gives people the hope for a better life.
Hydroelectric power, together with nuclear power forms the basis of the Swedish electricity system. The operation does not cause any carbon dioxide emissions and the water goes back into the river after leaving the turbine. 100% of the electricity we purchase for our facilities in Malmö and Stockholm come from hydroelectric power.
Kids Future – House of Hope
Kids Future collaborate with the Kids Ark Foundation in Thailand, working for children and young people to feel trust and confidence for the future. Kids Ark conducts the Houses of Hope – which is a meeting place for children and adolescents.
Aktiv Skola has values based on a holistic definition of the concept of health. This means that everything they do is based on this value system as they endeavour to achieve a higher degree of health of children. They believe that school is the most important place in society where we have a fantastic opportunity to make the health of our children and adolescents a priority.
The majority of Djurgården's activities consist of developing children and young people in the DIF youth project. Their goal is to develop children and youngsters in more ways than just fun, that is, playing ice hockey. Just as important are the values the children bring to the ice and off the ice.
Zelmerlöw & Björkman Foundation
Zelmerlöw & Björkman Foundation is a fundraising foundation that was founded by Måns Zelmerlöw and Jonas Björkman in 2013. The foundation strengthens vulnerable young people in parts of Africa, all the way from exclusion and poverty to work and livelihoods. This is done primarily through education and entrepreneurship. Together with local partners, the foundation identifies young people in the slums and helps them to educate themselves, find their talents and driving forces, so that they can influence their own future.
Up, up - we lift
In Sweden, approximately 10,000 elite athletes are aged 15-19 years old and are at upper secondary schools, these are young people dreaming of success in their chosen sport. In this very specific and demanding environment, many students experience huge pressures to perform to their very best ability at sports events. Young people feel a great deal of stress, which in turn can lead to mental ill health. In addition, there can be bullying, loneliness and isolation with these sports events, something that was noted by school inspections in 2014. As a result, the National Athletics Association, together with the Special Athletes Association and the Swedish National Agency for Education has decided to highlight these important and sensitive topics about mental health among our youth within sport.
Husie IFs women´s team
This is one of the sports teams that we support, Husie IFs women´s team who plays in division 3. The club has carried out a training camp where Informationsteknik has, among other things, lent out video equipment to record training sessions and matches. The girls conducted four intense sessions and ended the weekend with a match against Gothenburg SIF. The video equipment was used both for analysis and to make exercises and matches available to players and leaders who could not be present. (Photo by Mats Borg)
