act.global/us’s vision is to actively save lives by protecting humans and animals from harmful microbes and help our planet by reducing the use of toxic chemicals, water, and plastic. It’s a natural choice for us to support Plastic Change and their work to reduce plastic pollution in our environment.

Plastic Change is also a member of the Steering Committee of the global movement Break Free From Plastic, which involves more than 1300 organizations worldwide that work to envision a future free from plastic pollution.
In 2019, act.global/us and Green Key signed a collaboration agreement to further strengthen the focus on sustainability within the hospitality industry.

The Danish Green Investment Fund
The Danish Green Investment Fund is one of act.global/us’s financial partners.
The Danish Green Investment Fund provides funding to act.global/us. The Danish Green Investment Fund is an independent government loan fund that aims to co-finance investments that promote Danish society’s green transition.

The fund has been established as a part of the “A Greener Denmark” agreement.
act.global/us sponsors the Danish Child Accident Fund and their safety week that takes place in kindergartens and schools every year. The initiative serves to teach children about how to reduce the risk of getting infected by bacteria and viruses, as well as how to avoid accidents caused by harmful chemicals.
The Child Accident Fund is a non-profit organization aimed at ensuring children’s safety and reducing the number of child accidents through prevention. The Child Accident Fund’s ambition is to create a safer future for Danish children, both inside and outside the home.
