Main areas of sponsorships and donations
We support programs mainly related to science, research and education, environmental protection and conservation, and health and social.
Science, research and education
Research and education programs by universities, colleges, or research institutes that address technology and business management issues related to Metso’s business.
Environmental protection and conservation
Environmental programs, events and organizations to increase the exchange of information, improve the awareness on environmental issues or gain positive impact on the environment.
Health and social programs
Programs that help raise awareness of health and safety related matters and/or have a direct and concrete social benefit by having a positive impact on the communities and areas in which we operate.
Universities and foundations
Universities or foundations that wish to stress their academic or cultural independence may prefer monetary donations. Where appropriate, Metso can make a donation to these bodies. Additionally, individual scholarships for advanced studies may be considered as a means to attract talent and to support recruitment. Many countries have specific legislation and tax regulations regarding such donations, which must be adhered to.
Fundraising campaigns are often arranged to provide immediate financial support for relief work in a disaster area. Depending on the case, Metso may donate a fixed amount for such a cause, complementing fundraising by employees, customers or other stakeholders.
