Promote social and economic growth
Our vision and ambitions
When thinking of sustainable development, the environment is
often the first topic that comes to mind. However, sustainable
development also includes attention for people, society and
community. Grolsch dedicates itself to contributing to a
sustainable society in our own region. For that reason we
participate in projects that strive for that same goal: from sport
and culture to entrepreneurship and care for the elderly; all
social projects that benefit the region and its people. In that way
we contribute to social and economic growth in our local area.
At Grolsch we are currently undertaking a variety of initiatives
and activities to encourage social and economic growth:
- Supporting a diverse range of cultural, sports and social
associations, foundations and activities. These include the Boekelo
equestrian event, the Enschede Marathon, the FBK Games, the
Overijssel and Geldersch 'landschap' countryside protection
organisations and various associations/foundations based in the
direct vicinity of the brewery. In the field of culture, Grolsch
co-operates with Muziekkwartier Enschede, Poppodium ATAK, de
Twentse Welle, Rijksmuseum Twenthe and others.
- Grolsch supports the sustainability convenant Twente which
should make events in Twente more sustainable by sharing knowledge
- Grolsch served as the central collection point for the Enschede
- Supporting several public water taps in the region.
- Launch of the 'Grolsch Craftmanship is Mastery Fund' to
encourage 'Craftsmanship' in the broadest sense in our region.
