Active community engagement is important for us! It takes a lot of pine needles to build an anthill, and it will probably never get built if the job of dragging the needles to the stack is always left to ‘the others’. Consequently, we always aim to take seriously our responsibilities at a local level, while at the same time striving for active community engagement in a wider perspective..
Hammerglass AB is environmentally certified in accordance with ISO 14001:2015 and has focused on a daily basis on recycling and environmental work. We are continually investing in new production technology. One of the requirements in investment decisions is that we should be able to demonstrate how new technology results in a clearly reduced environmental impact.
High school students
The municipality of Båstad was one of the first local authorities to accept the possibility of offering adapted vocational training in parallel with theoretical instruction. We currently have high school students enrolled in the Industry Programme who are with us 3 days a week for a period of 3 years. During this period, they are required to learn enough about the practical side of manufacturing to render them employable by us – or by another industrial company.
We support our local sports associations with contributions to their activities.
The Night Walkers
The yellow jacket of The Night Walkers has become an established symbol of security for young people and young adults. Since 1989, The Night Walkers has worked to ensure that there are adult role models, compassionate support and social security among young people when they move out in the evenings and at night. The presence of The Night Walkers also prevents crime such as vandalism, violence and drug abuse. By supporting The Night Walkers, we support our young people!
Swedish Sea Rescue Society
Together with the Industrial Group we support the activities of the Swedish Sea Rescue Society, involving active lifesaving operations at sea. We have among other things contributed funds for the purchase of a jet-propelled lifeboat, along with new premises for the local society.
The Cinnamon Bun Project
All research points to the fact that education is the third world’s route out of poverty – both for the individual and the nation. Unfortunately, education is often extremely expensive and is primarily the preserve of the affluent. Hammerglass has undertaken to pay the majority of the school costs for two pupils on the outskirts of Capetown in South Africa. Both Qhama and Mihlali, born in 2004, are today happy high school students. We have undertaken to follow them all the way through to their high school diploma.Learn more about THE CINNAMON BUN PROJECT
Vision For All
Hammerglass supports Vision For All (VFA), a not-for-profit organisation which aims to do what it can for people who need glasses for study and work. VFA works with the very poorest, who have the greatest need of the services of an optician. These people have no possibility of paying for an eye examination or obtaining glasses. VFA collects good and used glasses in Sweden. The glasses are measured and cleaned, and VFA’s opticians and assistants then drive out into the world to distribute them.Visit VISION FOR ALL
