I recently participated in a 303 mile bike ride in 24 hours from Chester-le-Street Cricket Ground in Durham to The Oval Cricket Ground in London. This was the most daunting and challenging thing that I have ever done but it was an amazing experience!
At Trelleborg, we support the communities where we are located by participating in various social activities like this bike ride. Mental health is something that is being talked about more and more these days which is a real positive, so it was great to be able to help out a fantastic charity by raising some money! In total, we raised approx. £4,000 to date this goes directly to the If U Care Share Foundation, which focuses on the prevention, intervention and support of those bereaved by suicide and with mental health issues.
Corporate Responsibility work is important for Trelleborg's long-term value creation, and spans the entire sustainability area, from environment, health and safety issues to compliance and ethical relationships with employees, customers, suppliers, local communities and society as a whole.
