Officially launched today, the Ahlström Collective Impact (ACI) is a joint responsibility initiative by Ahlström Network companies consisting of Ahlstrom-Munksjö, Ahlström Capital, Antti Ahlström Perilliset, Destia, Glaston and the Eva Ahlström Foundation.
Ahlström Collective Impact is a new collaboration model between the partner companies and UNICEF Finland enabling the Ahlström Network companies to join forces in achieving significant change in the global society and improving the lives of the children worldwide. The Ahlström Collective Impact was originally initiated by The Eva Ahlström Foundation in 2020 and is designed for strategic investments with impact that support the realization of selected Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) defined by the United Nations.
For Glaston the ACI initiative and collaboration is an innovative way to contribute to a better tomorrow for future generations. By joining forces and coming together with the Ahlström Network companies we get stronger together and can really make a difference. The initiative supports our corporate responsibility work and supports our value “together we build the future”.
In 2020 Ahlström Collective Impact focuses on supporting the COVID-19 crisis aid to children, the hidden victims of the pandemic. The coronavirus pandemic has both short- and long-term impacts on the health, well-being and the development of children. UNICEF is tackling these challenges by supporting governments worldwide in their efforts to secure basic healthcare and education for every child.
