Our sustainability and social responsibility
Entercard is conscious of its impact on society as an employer, lender, business partner and stakeholder. Therefore, we have set clear goals regarding our corporate social responsibility both at corporate level and for each individual employee. Our core values – ”passionate”, “innovative” and “genuine” reflect everything we do.
Entercard supports UN’s Sustainable Development Goals. We have chosen to focus our efforts on the following three goals:
4: Quality education
5: Gender equality
8: Decent work and economic growth
Actions speak louder than words
Our corporate social responsibility motto is: “We use our strengths to help others”. All Entercard employees have the opportunity to spend some of their working hours contributing to our corporate social responsibility projects. We have chosen to engage in projects that boost knowledge sharing and skills development among young people. Through cooperation with various partners, we are creating a win-win situation by offering our time and expertise. Our diverse staff have expertise from around the world; Entercard employees represent more than 40 different nationalities. We can create a bigger impact by doing something concrete together, rather than simply donating money. In addition to helping young people, this stimulates internal motivation and interaction across the organisation.
Via cooperation agreements with NGOs, our employees can utilise their strengths in a variety of ways like offering children’s chess courses, career guidance and company visits for youth, innovation, entrepreneurship and support of people who are facing challenges. We cooperate with organisations such as Ungt Entreprenørskap, My Dream Now, Norwegian chess players, Blue Cross Norway and Fryshuset.
