Corporate Social Responsibility
We want to inspire the world to be more conscious and aware about the importance of being an active part of the society. For this reason, we have supported causes that inspires us.
In 2016 and 2017, we were recognized as Corporate Partner for the organization Save the Children. We care about the future of our youngest, since they are a fundamental part of our society. We trust that by giving them an opportunity of a healthy start and a protected environment, they will have a better life and contribute to the community.
Culture and philosophy
Our philosophy is humanizing our surroundings and we focus our efforts on following these values. Diversity is part of our principles. For this reason, we also cooperate as sponsor of the Salaam Shalom organization, which means “hello” and “peace” in Hebrew and Arabic. We encourage dialogue and communication without barriers of cultural differences. New ideas, approaches and thinking motivates new knowledge. We participate in their annual event, where minorities connect and help each other.
Every day, we meet different cultures represented by our guests and we are very glad to give our best, promoting equality and learning from each other. Connecting the world and supporting diverse lifestyles, through biking as our unique language, is the way we act.
In our organization, we also promote inclusion through an international colorful staff, with a mixture of backgrounds and nationalities. We believe that by joining forces, we can get amazing positive outcomes for our society and establish a better understanding of our customers’ needs. We help each other as a team, by motivating our international employees to integrate in the society through informal Danish language sessions at the workplace. We are convinced that the best way to learn is by doing.
We also support innovation in several ways. In Copenhagen Bicycles, we are captivated by the Danish start-up culture and we value talented people who work hard to develop smart solutions with positive impacts on our city. For instance, we contributed to the fundraising campaign of the start-up Velocator, because we are convinced that ideas such as this GPS tracking solution will provide a safer and friendlier bike-life.
In our company, we make space for individual entrepreneurs, searching for a place to showcase their work. We collaborate, unifying resources with our sales and marketing forces to boost their brands.
Copenhagen Bicycles is present in various events organized by Copenhagen Municipality. For instance, we have been volunteering and sponsors in the Copenhagen Pride Parade in 2017. Happiness and freedom are part of our core values, which is why we promote ourselves actively in local activities that are aligned with our principles. We also participate in other events around the harbor and the city in general.
Our CEO, Yael Bassan is a panelist of the weekly radio program Public Service, which broadcasts on the Danish Radio station P1. Through each segment the cast aims to find solutions to daily problems of the Danish society.
