What we do

Swedish companies depend on international trade and expansion in order to stay competitive. Opportunities for growth are increasingly concentrated in countries where challenges to working sustainably exist. This is why companies need to develop strategies for long-term success that consider the economy, environment and society.

NIR assists Swedish companies to advance their potential in challenging markets and we work actively to contribute to sustainable development in these countries.

SWHAP

The Swedish Workplace HIV and AIDS Programme (SWHAP) is a joint initiative by the International Council of Swedish Industry (NIR) and the Swedish Industrial and Metal Workers’ Union (IF Metall). It is a long-term strategy to contribute to the establishment and/or support of HIV and wellness programmes at Swedish-related companies in sub-Saharan Africa. SWHAP is an example of how management, employees and trade unions can contribute to a successful intervention that saves lives and secures future markets. Since 2004, this programme has been helping companies invest in workplace programmes that reverse the negative impact of HIV and AIDS.
