Corporate citizenship at LANXESS
What do students from China, schoolgirls from South Africa, high school graduates from Germany and young musicians from Japan have in common? All four of them have extraordinary talents, which under normal circumstances could perhaps have gone unnoticed.
LANXESS has given them the opportunity to take part in exciting projects and develop their talents. For many years, the specialty chemicals company has been championing projects, initiatives and competitions around the globe that make a positive contribution to society – known as corporate citizenship. This is LANXESS’s way of taking responsibility for socially relevant topics such as education, climate protection, water and culture – including well beyond the company’s daily areas of business. In 2018, LANXESS again funded 175 local activities and projects worldwide having a total volume in the region of €1.3 million.
At LANXESS, sustainability and responsibility are important factors for success. Which is why the company is committed to establishing partnerships with customers, enhancing quality of life for people all over the world and protecting the environment. LANXESS groups together all initiatives that support these aims under the umbrella of corporate responsibility. In keeping with the mission statement “good for the company, good for the community,” the company aspires to instigate effective initiatives that generate added value not only for the company, but also for wider society and the environment. The same applies to corporate citizenship, which extends beyond the company’s core business areas.
