The aim is that employees will actively participate in the global work of Engineers Without Borders and volunteer in international projects. As a partner, Kiwa can contribute with everything from testing and technical consultancy to inspections. The projects that Engineers Without Borders carries out around the world often go hand in hand with what Kiwa employees do on a daily basis.
‘We see our cooperation as a perfect match between our common ambitions to make the world more sustainable and to be able to pass on our knowledge and expertise to the people who need it most,’ says Erik Landgren.
