In September 2018 and September 2019, we organized a challenge with all our portfolio companies, for the World Clean-up Day. The goal was to raise awareness among the portfolio companies on topics like biodiversity and plastic pollution. In 2018 we gathered 416 participants, from 5 different companies, in 6 countries, to battle the issue of plastic waste.
In 2019, we almost tripled the number of participants (1 200), from 7 companies, in 7 countries. Tendam, who won the Awareness prize thanks to a great internal campaign and the personal involvement of its CEO, was awarded 1 hectare of forest planted in Zambia by PAI. This is an initiative proposed by WeForest, a partner specialized in reforestation and carbon offsetting.
