Community engagement

Throughout its history, Fiskars Group has been closely involved in the everyday life of the communities where we operate.

We are part of the communities where we operate, and we want to ensure that these communities are able to thrive economically, socially and environmentally. We support this by actively contributing to these communities’ positive development and minimizing any negative impacts our operations may have on them.  

Fiskars Group respects the cultures, customs, and values of local communities and builds local relationships to strengthen mutual understanding, while at the same time striving to live by our values. We engage stakeholders in an active and transparent dialogue and address societal issues with neighbors, civil society organizations and others with an interest in the company.  

In 2020, we also took part in countless small and bigger community engagement actions around the world, aiming to make the everyday extraordinary within those communities. In total we invested 700,000 EUR in local communities.
