In 2015, EWB-DK has established several new CSR partnerships. Among others with Lodam Electronics A/S, a Danish engineering company working with innovative and efficient electronic climate control solutions. The partnership with Lodam focuses on combining the technical knowledge and interests of the company with EWB-DK’s work and projects. By combining the technical knowledge of Lodam with that of EWBDK’s volunteers, and sharing it with local partners, projects are elevated to a higher technical level, securing local sustainability and benefiting the end users.
