The collaboration with RedLocker is a practical initiative that is part of SMT’s equality and inclusion work. The RedLocker dispensers offer free menstrual care products in the workplace, increasing safety and an inclusive environment for employees and visitors.

SMT will install Redlocker dispensers at most sites in Sweden, and until today, a total of 25 dispenders have been installed and refilled regularly.

Two of the UN's goals for sustainable development are

Goal 5, Equality
Everyone should have the same rights, conditions, and opportunities. To work for increased equality is to act so that everyone can cope with their everyday life and live their lives.

Goal 3, Health and wellbeing
Good health and hygiene are fundamental prerequisites for people's ability to reach their full potential and contribute to the development of society. It is a human right to have the right to good hygiene to cope with everyday life, no matter what day of the month it is.
