Christmas Gifts 2018 for Clean Water
Christmas Gifts 2018 for Clean Water

In line with Hultafors Group’s commitment to contribute to a better society long-term, we have decided to give this year’s Christmas gifts for Group functions to an organisation called Solvatten (“Sunwater”).

​2018 is soon coming to an end, and it has been an exciting year in many ways for Hultafors Group. During the year, two new companies have joined us – Johnson Level and Hellberg Safety – and we are very proud and happy to have them in our house of brands. We have also managed to lift both sales and profits to new levels and this is only thanks to all the hard and dedicated work by all of our great employees!

This year, Group Management has decided to donate the money for Christmas gifts for Group functions to an organisation called Solvatten. The total sum donated by Hultafors Group is 73,080 SEK.

Clean water​ for many

This donation is made in cooperation with Latour, who will match our donation with the same amount again, making this a considerable contribution to clean water for people in need. Latour has decided to take part in a project in Burkina Faso where Solvatten cooperates with Plan International. The total contribution from Latour will be 955 Solvatten units, which will provide clean water for around 7,640 people.

What is Solva​​tten?

Solvatten is a combined portable water treatment and water heater system that has been designed for off-grid household use in the developing world. It is an easy, innovative solution that provides access to clean, hot water to people throughout the world. 

Lack of safe water, poor hygiene and poor health are daily challenges for millions of people living in poverty. Worldwide, 1 in 3 people live without reliable access to electricity and 1 out 8 people live without access to safe water.

Solvatten makes water safe and hot — up to 75°C/167°F. Water at this temperature is perfect for a number of household and hygiene purposes. Clean and hot water is good for cooking, hand washing, bathing and domestic cleaning.
