At LyondellBasell, we believe in being a responsible, good neighbor in the communities where we operate and beyond. Through the power of many we will advance the positive future we know is possible.
We invest in charitable organizations around the world through our Global Corporate Philanthropy Programs. Four key focus areas enable us to advance our communities; improving education, promoting good health, supporting first responders and protecting the environment.
We also host several key community events each year that help demonstrate our commitments to making a difference.
Global Care Day:
For the past 20 years, LyondellBasell sites have come together to devote one day a year to making a positive impact in our communities through volunteerism. Global Care Day is our annual worldwide day of service where employees – along with friends and family – volunteer with local charities.
This year, more than 3,700 employees and their families will lend their time and talents to projects focused on waste cleanup and sustainability. This global event is just one way LyondellBasell is leading the effort to reduce environmental impacts by protecting and preserving our global environment.
On a cumulative basis, LyondellBasell mobilized approximately 33,600 volunteers who donated nearly 212,000 hours in support of their communities since the inception of Global Care Day.
Each fall, LyondellBasell launches a month long U.S.-wide campaign in support of United Way’s mission to support education, assist in the financial stability of others and make communities healthy and strong. The company supports over 40 local United Way chapters and matches employee contributions dollar for dollar up to $1.3 million dollars.
Employee Matching Gift Program:
The LYB Employee Matching Gift Program increases employees’ eligible donations made to qualifying charitable organizations by matching those contributions dollar-for-dollar or euro-for-euro.
