  • Aims to achieve tangible, measurable impact
  • Includes outcomes that are sustainable and lasting

Fair and Sustainable Employment: we support programmes that are able to

  • Foster income generating opportunities for the most vulnerable communities.
  • Fostering innovative social enterprises that have the potential to tackle root causes of poverty in a sustainable manner.

Clean and Safe Logistics: we fund projects that are able to

  • Improve health and safety of populations impacted by logistics activities.
  • Tackle environmental issues caused by transportation or infrastructure at land and sea.
