Environment in Greenland – Part IV
By Pertti Frandsen
The two stamps in the fourth part of our ‘Environment in Greenland’ series were created by artist Sissi Møller. She is one of the younger personalities on the Greenlandic art scene. These are Sissi’s seventh and eighth stamps for POST Greenland since her stamp début in 2014.
Sissi’s two new stamps are very much inspired by symbols from Greenlandic people’s everyday lives. In Sissi’s own words: “There is movement in the first design, featuring a harpoon, seal and ulo (small knife for scraping skins), as your view is led round, starting from the harpoon. This expresses what I think about sustainability.
The second stamp interacts with the first one, as the bulb symbolises ideas, thoughts, consideration and respect for sea creatures. At the same time, we show respect for what we eat and live off.”
Clean Greenland – a collaborative project with WWF
In partnership with CSR Greenland, WWF is working with a number of Greenlandic companies to reduce their environmental impact. ‘Clean Greenland – Green Companies’ is, therefore, a three-year collaborative project that is supported by the Government of Greenland.
The project aims to reduce the environmental impact of participating companies. There is a focus on helping participating companies to communicate their environmental initiatives and results to employees, customers, authorities, media and other stakeholders.
The aim is to ensure that participating companies should become trendsetters and affect the development of Greenlandic society and the way we look at environmental challenges.
