We are proud to support the Electrolux Food Foundation, an independent, non-profit organization that supports initiatives to inspire more sustainable food choices among consumers and professionals, and to support people in need in the communities around us.
Since food is a major battleground in the fight against climate change, the foundation’s focus is well aligned with the Electrolux Professional commitment to contribute to change through the Sustainability committment, that supports the UN Agenda 2030 and Sustainable Development Goals.
