Ahlström Collective Impact

Ahlström Capital has joined Ahlström Collective Impact (ACI) initiative – a corporate social responsibility initiative to support UNICEF’s work for a better future for children. ACI was founded in 2020 and it is a new co-operation model between the Ahlström Network and UNICEF Finland. ACI is designed for targeted strategic investments that support the realisation of selected United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Today, ACI consists of Ahlström Capital and Ahlström Invest, Ahlstrom-Munksjö, Destia, Detection Technology, Enics, Glaston, Suominen, Avain Yhtiöt, M&J Recycling as well as Antti Ahlström Perilliset, Eva Ahlström Foundation and Walter Ahlström Foundation. In 2022, ACI made an investment of EUR 770,000 into UNICEF’s Global Education Program. In addition, the companies, employees, foundations, and shareholders within the Ahlström Collective Impact have raised nearly EUR 300,000 for the children in Ukraine.

UNICEF’s Global Education Program provides support for millions of children who need to continue to learn, grow and develop the skills necessary to thrive in life. By bringing together the companies and foundations in the Ahlström network, the initiative can have a bigger impact than the partners could have alone.

In 2021, a programme for ACI ambassadors was launched. ACI ambassadors are employees and shareholders of Ahlström Network companies that drive and implement ACI’s vision and take the initiative to campaigns and events (such as World Children’s Day) into life locally. Moreover, ACI ambassadors also learn about UNICEF and children’s rights, UN’s Sustainable Development Goals and social responsibility.
