Donations by the Board of Directors

Kesko Group's donations for the public good can only include funds reserved for that purpose by the Annual General Meeting and on the use of which the Board of Directors has made a decision.

Kesko Corporation's Board of Directors annually makes a proposal to the Annual General Meeting on the use of distributable earnings. At the discretion of the Board of Directors, the proposal has also included a provision/authorisation to the Board of Directors on the use of the donated amount put forward in the proposal for profit distribution.

We currently support schoolchildren’s Me & MyCity learning concept and Christmas charity collections.

Me & MyCity is a learning concept covering society, economy, working life and entrepreneurship aimed at comprehensive school sixth- and ninth-graders. Me & MyCity is a Global Best Awards winner operating in eight different regions in Finland and it reaches annually over 45,000 schoolchildren.

Kesko and child rights organization Plan International Finland are cooperating to improve the responsibility of the fishing industry and the situation of migrant workers in Thailand. We have agreed on cooperation for the years 2015–2018. As a part of the project already 100 children from migrant families have been able to start school. Further information about the cooperation between Kesko and Plan .
