Taking on responsibility for the neighborhoodOur responsibility does not end at our company gates. On the contrary, we want to be an active and supportive member of the communities we operate in.
Supporting the communities we operate in
INEOS Styrolution believes that community engagement is best led locally. This way we can steer best our activities towards where the most pressing needs are. We strive to be a good and welcome corporate citizen and want to make a difference in all local communities we operate in. We not only want to improve the quality of life at the company’s various locations, we are also committed to developing long-term and positive relationships with our neighbors. We place a strong focus on future generations and donate our efforts and money to drive initiatives that support the health and well-being of young and disadvantaged children. Therefore, we support local charity, sports and education programs and other areas determined by local community needs.
INEOS Styrolution’s flagship initiatives to support future generations
READY, SET, GO RUN FOR FUN: INEOS AND INEOS STYROLUTION FRANKFURT STAGE RUNNING EVENT FOR KIDS
An active lifestyle is key to health and well-being. This is why INEOS, INEOS Styrolution’s parent company, launched the global GO Run For Fun campaign. With already more than 160,550 children participating so far, the GRFF is the world’s largest running series for children, encouraging young people’s participation in sports. In Germany, GRFF is under the patronage of Hermann Gröhe, Federal Minister of Health. In 2015, INEOS Styrolution’s global headquarters in Frankfurt staged a local run with over 500 enthusiastic elementary school students aged between 5 and 11 years. In response to the very positive resonance, in 2016, we expanded our GRFF series with now two events in Frankfurt and two events in Chicago, near to our Americas headquarters.
Inspiring science at primary school age with Kuno
With our future generations in mind, we are committed to promoting educational projects. As the leading global styrenics supplier, we want to inspire interest in science among young people at an early stage by introducing primary school students playfully to the world of chemistry and plastics. In cooperation with PlasticsEurope Germany e.V. and the teacher training center lfbz of the Frankfurt University, INEOS Styrolution provides free teacher trainings as well as "Kunos coole Kunststoff-Kiste," an experimental kit for child-oriented scientific experiments. Beyond our efforts for primary schools, we support doctorates at universities with scholarships, for example in the field of R&D.
