75 years of CSR

Three Stars - Tres Estrellas - Three Moons - Solstickan

The safety match, and it’s production technology, are two of the inventions that made Sweden an industrial nation with export. When Solstickan (the sun stick) was created in 1936, safety matches had been produced in Sweden for almost 100 years. The label drawing was made by the artist Einar Nerman, and it has been said to be the most reproduced work of art in the world. On this picture it’s in the original form with no toning on the sun.

With every box of matches sold, a small amount goes to the Solstickan foundation, which since 1936 has raised 10.000.000 euros for children, elderly and research.

A 75 year old CSR project!
