(PRESS RELEASE) STOCKHOLM, 24-Jul-2020 — /EuropaWire/ — Swedish multinational power company Vattenfall and EVBox, Amsterdam based electric vehicle charging solutions provider, have announced that a team of volunteers from both companies have rainbow colored the public chargers in Amsterdam in support of the Dutch Pride Week. Proceeds from public chargers will be donated to the Dutch LGBTQ association COC, to help support youth initiatives.
Throughout the Dutch Pride Week (July 25–August 2), all revenue generated from more than 100 specially-covered stations across the city will be donated to the Dutch LGBTQ association, COC.
Pride is more important than ever
Although Amsterdam’s main Pride event is canceled, several virtual Pride events are still planned to take place in the coming weeks so that the LGBTQ community and its allies can celebrate virtually.
“Considering the challenging times that we live in today, celebrating diversity and establishing dialogues between different groups of people is more important than ever. Therefore EVBox and Vattenfall are delighted to be able to raise money also this year for the COC’s important and inspiring youth initiatives,” says Ronald Stahli, chairman Diversity & Inclusion, Vattenfall Netherlands.
Earlier this summer, Vattenfall’s Diverse Energy Network and Rainbow Network in Germany received a lot of positive respons for its digital Pride week event that was arranged between 29 June and 3 July.
