Charity golf tournaments for PenFed Foundation Military Heroes fund
In 2019, we reached the significant milestone of raising over US$1 million for the PenFed Foundation Military Heroes Fund since we started our annual charity golf tournament in 2007. This historic year was also marked by our CEO, Patrick Williams, receiving the Foundation’s Corporate Hero Award at their 15th Annual Night of Heroes Gala held in Washington, D.C. on 19 April.
Ecotherm® futur Donation Funds Reforestation Program
Our Fuel Specialties business makes a donation to the German Association for the Protection of Forests and Woodland for every liter of ecotherm® futur sold. For 2019 sales, we donated over €12,000, making a total of over €344,000 since the partnership began in 2008. The 2019 donation was used by the Association to plant a further 6,000 trees in a forest in Herne. The trees will replace those lost and damaged during the 2018 heavy storms and a forest fire cause by high summer temperatures.
