Red Cross/Red Cresent has been present in the country for eight years, serving over 3 million people in need in the conflict areas. The recent escalation of the conflict leaves even more civilians in need of basic humanitarian support. 

Group Communications Director, Christian Espolin Johnson, says: "A part of our Corporate Responsibility strategy is to take responsibility in the areas where we operate, and Jotun want to contribute economically to aid the emergency situation in Ukraine."

By choosing Red Cross/Red Crescent as our partner, we know that the money is spent according to our intention.

Another good year for Jotun
