Corporate Responsibility : Community Involvement



Our employees throughout the world volunteer their time to give back to the communities in which they live and work. Employees volunteer as firefighters, scout leaders and coaches. They are active on their school boards, local governance and parent-teacher organizations. They participate in alumni associations, chambers of commerce and local clubs.

Our employees work as volunteers to help raise money for various charities and special projects, and donate food and other items to local soup kitchens and shelters. Many employees are involved in Adopt-A-School programs, science fairs and other school-enrichment programs. Our Research & Development scientists visit local schools, and we open our facilities to students and teachers to demonstrate how our lives are improved every day by chemistry and to encourage students to consider science as a career choice.

In the towns and cities where our facilities are located, we assist organizations that:  

  • provide and supplement educational opportunities, especially to disadvantaged students;
  • provide social and health services to enable individuals to achieve self-sufficiency; and 
  • provide access to economic opportunity for disadvantaged people.

We are committed to improving the quality of life in our local communities as we endeavor to create a better future.
