Kaunis Iron naturally has a big effect on the local community in the Pajala area, since we are a significant employer and fairly big company buying goods and services for millions of kronor every year. This of course makes demands on us. We must take a self-evident responsibility for how we act.
We want to be a driving force for local business and reinvest where we can when buying services and goods. During 2021 Kaunis Iron reinvested about 397 mSEK locally and 615 mSEK regionally.
Our close collaboration with Luleå University of Technology also contributes to both strengthened research and improved skills supply for companies in our industry.
Since our start-up we have had good cooperation with Samhall, which plays an important social role locally in Pajala. We are also involved in developing meeting places, such as Folkets Hus community centre in Kaunisvaara and Tornedalen Pride, and we are pleased to engage in projects focusing on children and young people. Quite simply, the well-being of the local community is important to us.
