A clear social responsibility

Resurs takes clear social responsibility as a member of its industry, and contributes to the positive and inclusive development of so­ciety. Through partnership and social commit­ment, Resurs benefits society and offers the opportunity to have healthy personal finances, with a particular focus on supporting young people and new entrants to the labour market.

Resurs uses responsible and sustainable credit lending to contribute to financial inclusion and to help more people realise their dreams and make life investments without going beyond what their finances will allow. Resurs’s social commitment is expressed primarily through organisations and initiatives that aim to help people take control over their lives and their futures.

Volunteer work

Resurs’s employees have the opportunity to devote eight work hours per year to local volunteer work. The work should primarily emphasise supporting young people and new entrants to the labour market, through measures such as mentoring and tutoring young people. Among other things, this may involve offering mentoring activities and homework help for young people in collaboration with Drivkraft och Engagemang Helsingborg.

An important role in society as a sponsor and partner

Resurs’s presence in local communities is also expressed through con­scious long-term sponsorships. Social investments at a Nordic level is given priority over traditional sponsorship and an emphasis on partnership that is in line with Resurs’ overall agenda.
