Society & community engagement

We play an active role in society. Our focus is on having a strong local presence in the regions in which our plants are located, and on development and growth in the chemicals sector.

This includes supporting young people in their academic and professional careers, contributing towards the dialogue between science, business, and the community, and being active in professional networks.

There are numerous examples of our community and social involvement. For example, we support a range of scientific programs, and young scientists at universities, and we hold presentations at conferences worldwide. Our company tours and school visits give students a taste of what is involved in various occupations; partnerships, offers of work placements and diploma theses, as well as presentations at schools and universities, are all designed to help young people get a clearer idea about their future professional goals.

Our employees worldwide also participate in a multitude of diverse social activities, such as planting a mangrove forest in Thailand, which illustrate their commitment to helping the community as a whole.
