We have been a proud sponsor of MUNCH since 1991.

 

Our company has a long tradition for corporate social responsibility (CSR). In Norway, we are very proud of our long history with MUNCH.

It is exciting to know that our contributions over the years have helped strengthening the exhibition program and enabled MUNCH to reach new audiences both in Norway and abroad.

Last October, the new museum building by Oslo’s waterfront finally opened. Here, MUNCH aims to provide opportunities for completely new cultural experiences and perspectives. Edvard Munch’s art finally has been given the space it deserves.

On behalf of our employees and partners, we cherish the opportunity to be inspired by one of Norway’s greatest artists. Being able to help preserve our cultural heritage is a privilege we are grateful for.

In 2019, we extended our sponsorship agreement once again and planted five cherry trees in front of the new museum building in Bjørvika to mark the occasion.
