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.

Community Outreach

We regularly receive visitors representing the authorities or the local community for plant tours to discuss our health, safety and environmental performance. Every two years our Botlek or Maasvlakte site participates in the national 'Day of Chemistry'. On this day we open our doors to everyone who is interested to seeing our operations and performance.

Educational Support

We support science education by organizing activities with local students through the petrochemical industry's Education Information Center, the EIC-Mainport.We also host visits of Universities and other schools.

Global Care Day

Thousands of our employees, worldwide, work to make a difference in the world by joining this annual community-service day.


We encourage our employees' engagement in the local community. Collectively, our employees spend hundreds of hours each month in volunteer service. They serve as emergency responders, coaches, mentors, and board members in the community.
