Social engagement

The Unica Foundation was established by our organisation 15 years ago, at the initiative of one of our employees. Unica is the most important contributor to this independently operating foundation. Over the years, numerous other parties have become supporters of the foundation. The Unica Foundation supports aid projects in developing countries by sharing its knowledge of and skills in the field of (sustainable) technology with the local population, in a structural and sustainable manner. The foundation has completed almost 100 projects in Nepal, improving the living conditions of more than 60,000 people.

Various employees of our organisation volunteer as fundraisers for the Unica Foundation. In 2023, the team organised a national sports day that was open to colleagues from all the group’s companies. All money raised from sponsoring was donated to the foundation’s activities. This summer, dozens of colleagues travelled to the training complex of Vitesse football club at Papendal (in Arnhem) for a running race, mountain bike tour and football tournament. The money raised on this day was donated to the E4Wash project. In collaboration with Renewable World, the Unica Foundation was responsible for creating a water supply and sanitary facilities for 5 remote villages in Nepal with in total 1,500 inhabitants, as well as providing training to the locals in agricultural skills and maintaining hygiene.

Unica also demonstrates social engagement in the local communities where it operates. Every company in the Unica network supports social initiatives, ranging from sports clubs and cultural institutions through to teaching days and research projects. In this way, our companies demonstrate to the communities of which they form part their promise to always operate in close proximity with their customers. Unica also provides support to national good causes on a limited scale. Since 2022, Unica has been a partner of The National Park De Hoge Veluwe which uses the donations it receives from us and other partners for nature projects aimed at preserving and recovering the flora and fauna of the park. At the end of 2023, we entered into partnership with the Dutch Burns Foundation. The aim of this cooperation is to promote fire safety at work and home, with a particular focus on burn prevention and reducing the suffering among burns patients.
