Together we give back to society.
Sparbanksstiftelsen Skåne is an ownership foundation for Swedbank and finances its operations through dividends on its ownership in the bank. Swedbank’s corporate social responsibility began already 200 years ago and today Swedbank, together with its owner’s foundation, has a great commitment to enable people, companies and communities to grow. Therefore, we use part of the foundation’s share return to finance projects in the areas of business, education, research, culture and sports.
The overall goal of the grants made by the foundation and the bank is for the projects to support social development in the region. Southern Sweden Design Days is one such activity and therefore the project was granted funding.
In addition to these types of activities, financial support is also provided for economical education for young people, cultural projects both locally and regionally, sports initiatives and entrepreneurial activities. We do this in eleven municipalities in Skåne. We believe that enabling innovation, development and commitment makes communities grow.
