Community Involvement

We recognize that being a socially responsible member of the community requires maintaining an open door for dialogue with our community and actively working to support community needs.


The Carrington site has a long-established tradition of supporting the local community using a scheme of charitable donations based on the safety performance of the site. Over the years, hundreds of local organizations have benefited from these donations.


For many years the Carrington site has worked with local educational establishments such as Partington Primary, Wellacre Technology College, Broadoak High School and, more recently, Lymm High School. Regular visits to the site have taken place by students from these local schools, and company employees have visited local secondary schools to talk to students about careers in the chemical industry.

Links to UK universities are also well-established and each year we offer industrial placements to students studying in the areas of chemical engineering and health, safety and environmental management. We have also worked in cooperation with a local university in locating some environmental monitoring equipment on our site as part of a research project and we have participated in the "Manchester Gold" undergraduate mentoring scheme with the University of Manchester.
