With the start of the pandemic and the war in Ukraine, e² resources supported mask donations and employees involved with aid to Ukraine. In your opinion, what course will e² take in the future?
You’re right. So far, we’ve even veered away from the original goals on three occasions. In an amazing campaign, we planted more than 13,000 trees in 20 countries in honor of the company’s 170th anniversary. In 2020 and 2021, the world was severely challenged by the pandemic, which quickly developed into a food crisis. We then responded resolutely, supporting food banks, and shipping a great many containers full of masks around the world. In the same way, we have supported many different organizations that are active in Ukraine and the countries hosting refugees. You know, I think it’s perfectly appropriate to treat our guidelines flexibly in extraordinary times. But long-term, I would hope that we mainly support our two core fields, education and the environment, to meet the special needs in these areas.
