The chemicals company LANXESS has won three CSR awards within one month thanks to its persistence in corporate social responsibility activities. On January 22, LANXESS was entitled the “Best Corporate CSR Communication Award” at the 5th China Charity Festival. It is the third CSR award LANXESS received in January following the “2015 Beautiful China CSR Model Award”” and “All-Round Excellence Award during ’12th Five-year Plan’”.
“Since LANXESS was established, we have been integrating corporate social responsibility into the company’s development strategy. We are devoted to taking our social responsibilities in contributing to the social welfare and actively engaging ourselves in the charity activities,” said Ming Cheng Chien, CEO of LANXESS Greater China.
LANXESS China has been sparing no efforts in the social welfare. The company supports education, establishing positive public awareness towards chemicals and environmental protection. In particular, LANXESS China puts lots of efforts in education. LANXESS China has sponsored more than 300 university and high school students by offering scholarships. LANXESS China also donated self-developed experiment kits to elementary schools, covering more than 5,000 students, to help them learn basic chemistry knowledge and develop their interest in exploring chemistry.
In 2015, taking the opportunity of the release of the Action Plan for Preventing and Treatment of Water Pollution, LANXESS and China WTO Tribune jointly organized a research competition themed under “Clean Water for Better Life” to collect water research proposals and solutions to water challenges (see also http://webmagazine.lanxess.com/clean-water-for-better-life-competition/ ).
