Since our 2007 inception, we have disbursed more than $72.6M USD into initiatives that enable local employment, nurture small business growth and support financially viable social and environmental solutions.
At Lundin Foundation, we focus on entrepreneurial opportunities that power lasting, sustainable impact at the local level. Then, we look for untapped market prospects and build upon the inherent strengths of each community. When the project ends, the impact endures: community members have what they need to continue to contribute to the betterment of their societies.
Elevating Performance Across the Lundin Group
We leverage the collective strength of the Lundin Group of Companies by improving program results, innovating human development outcomes for communities and continually improving program design and implementation. We believe communities deserve an individualized approach.
A successful local solution demands adaptability, experimentation and an in-depth understanding of the surrounding environment. In partnership with local community members, we create a joint goal. Then, we test innovative project and flexible financing solutions to bring our collective vision to life.
The Lundin Group of Companies operates in 25 countries across the globe, discovering and developing natural resources and building world-class, responsible operations. We support companies within the Group to improve their Environmental and Social Governance (ESG) performance and develop strategic community investments to maximize economic and social benefits to communities.
