LKAB sponsors initiatives and activities locally, regionally, nationally and internationally in accordance with our strategy and our values. In Malmfälten, LKAB sponsors a number of associations, whose activities over a wide field, from ice hockey to swimming and art.
At a regional level, LKAB sponsors teams at the highest national elite level. Luleå Hockey's elite men's and women's teams, and the basketball teams Luleå Basket and BC Luleå. The elite sponsorship also includes sponsoring of individual athletes, such as Charlotte Kalla, Hanna Öberg, as well as Gällivare's successful female wrestlers, which gives LKAB exposure on a national and international level.
In addition, LKAB sponsors major events at operational locations such as Kirunafestivalen and Gällivarepremiären, the Swedish cross-country skiing premiere. In the cultural field, LKAB is the main sponsor of Norrbottensteatern, which in return organises children's and youth theatre activities in Kiruna and Gällivare.
In order to attract children and young people to take up science and technology courses, LKAB participates in Stiftelsen Teknikens Hus, Sweden's northernmost science centre, and the partnership behind Vetenskapens hus in Luleå.
