Making a difference is in Vikan’s DNA

The Vissing Foundation, a non-profit charitable foundation, owns 90% of Vikan’s shares. Our unusual ownership structure guides us to focus on the long-term outcomes of our decisions, including sustainability.


The Vissing Foundation’s mission

The foundation supports three main causes:
• medical research,
• sustainable energy,
• and marginalised young people and children.

Medical research

The Vissing Foundation has a long tradition of supporting cancer and diabetes research projects. This includes providing funding for near-patient research in disease prevention, diagnostics, and treatment in Denmark.

Energy research

Energy research

The foundation supports research into sustainable energy for all, focusing on the use of efficient and renewable energy technologies. Sustainable energy is also one of the UN's 17 global goals.

Marginalised children and young people
