CORPORATE SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY
We believe that every company is responsible to give back to the society. Since Nores Plastic Ltd. is active worldwide, we feel it is only fair that our good deeds know no borders. Through the years we have been actively engaged in supporting our wider society using a variety of channels.

Lastefond - Children's Fund
Nores Plastic Ltd. is committed to contributing to the improvement of childrens' treatment conditions in Estonia. Since 2004 we have been continuously supporting the University of Tartu Hospital Children's Fund. Our positive role model has not gone unnoticed even by our foreign business partners - in 2006 and 2012 the Children's Fund received a significant contribution from our Chinese customers.
In 2016 our support contributed to helping three young people with a very rare genetic disease called oligodontia. With this gene flaw after a child looses its milk teeth, majority of permanent teeth will never develop. With this disease the only cure are dental implants and together with a couple of other companies we have covered a part of their treatment costs.
In 2017 our support contributed to the daily physiotherapy and rehabilitation of a small girl called Hanna-Liisa ( born in 2008) who has a severe disability. She was born with hydrocephalus and spinal cord injury and diagnosed with Arnold-Chiari syndrome. Its a very rare genetic malformation, where certain part of human brain just hasnt developed.
In 2018 we took part in Lastefond's program to support children with severe disabilities to take part in different development therapies, e.g. music therapy and hippotherapy.
INTERNATIONAL RED CROSS

Donation for 2008 earthquake victims in Sichuan, China
In 2008 a terrible earthquake disaster shook China and the whole world. As we have long-term benefits from doing business with China therefore we felt the need to help our Chinese brothers in hard times. Through the Estonian Red Cross Nores Plastic Ltd. has sent its own contribution to support the earthquake victims.
Donation for 2010 alumina sludge disaster victims in Hungary
In October 2010 the small town of Devecser in Hungary was hit by an unprecedented environmental disaster. Toxic alumina sludge that escaped from a factory has flooded an area of 40 square kilometers. The mud was described as slightly radioactive and containing heavy metals and it has destroyed several villages. The disaster relief could take years and maybe even then life will not be the same in the region any more. With the assistance of Estonian Red Cross, Nores Plastic Ltd. has decided to support the Hungarian Red Cross in helping the disaster-stricken civilians.
