Saab, a signatory to UN Global Compact, sees CSR as a natural part of every-day activities, especially in our international operations. We often see CSR initiatives in the form of financial support to social projects, for instance to educational institutions and agro business, in countries where Saab operates such as Kenya and South Africa. But it can also be about focused efforts where there is urgent need for assistance in the aftermath of natural or man-made disasters. Such recent examples can be found in Saab’s “Project Relief”, where we have a rapid deployable contingent of Saab experts who can embark on humanitarian disaster missions around the globe to assist within the areas of water purification, shelter accommodation, power production etc.
More than 20% of Saab’s annual sales relates to research and development, where efforts in technological advances, for instance, create sustainable solutions to reduce environmental impacts. One examples of many is “Clean Sky”, one of EU’s largest research projects ever, where Saab is represented on the governing board. Saab also collaborates with some 50 Swedish and foreign academic institutions contributing to a number of research programs and centers of excellence. In 2011, this included eight EU projects, four ETAP projects and 24 NFFP projects.
