As a company, we draw numerous benefits from the society in which we operate – well-trained employees, satisfied customers, legal and political stability and an excellent infrastructure. We believe it is only right that, in line with the concept of corporate citizenship, we assume responsibility and ensure that society also benefits from our success. Our social commitment is based on the same fundamental principle as our entrepreneurial activities – a consistent focus on a manageable number of projects that promise long-term success.

Our not-for-profit activities focus on providing support for science education in schools. After all, skilled employees are a crucial prerequisite for the sustainable success of our company, no matter where in the world it operates. We endeavor to encourage young people to develop a passion for chemistry at a young age, awaken their inventive spirit and make them aware of the diverse career opportunities that the LANXESS Group offers.

Consequently, more than 60 percent of the projects we implemented in 2012 were dedicated to education. We also significantly extended our cultural commitment in 2012. Around 20 percent of our projects now fall into this category. This was one of the reasons why the geographical focus of our activities again shifted slightly more towards the EMEA region in the reporting year. Overall, more than 60,000 mainly young people benefited from our social commitment, which we funded with some €2.6 million in 2012.
