Danske Bank has had a partnership with Hus Forbi
for several years, through which employees of the bank have the opportunity to volunteer to prepare food for homeless and vulnerable people.
We have now decided to expand this partnership to also include Pant-for-Pant
. Through Pant-for-Pant, businesses, institutions and organisations donate their return deposits from the bottle and can recycling programme. The money collected goes towards education and wages for the Pant-for-Pant employees. Danske Bank employees assist as drivers when necessary.
“We’re happy that it’s been possible to further develop our collaboration with Hus Forbi. Pant-for-Pant has a clear purpose to provide vulnerable groups with the opportunity to find a footing in society, and that fits well with our mission as a bank to make a difference for the societies we’re a part of,” says Ea Wederwang
, Head of Corporate Volunteering.
This view is shared by Kristina Schmidt Thomsen
, who works with sustainability reporting at Danske Bank and who has volunteered with for Pant-for-Pant: “Coming out and helping people who have a hard time finding a job puts your everyday life and working life into perspective – and it’s not the last time that I’ll be applying to volunteer. I really want to contribute to a good cause, and volunteering is at the same time a nice way to be together as a team.”
