Supporting local communities through education, fundraising and sponsorship opportunities.
We understand the important role of our business in the social and economic development of the communities where we are based. Supporting our employees to participate in community activities is a core business value that benefits everyone involved.
Supporting local charities and good causes is an important part of our responsible business strategy. As a global company, we take pride in our local approach, supporting the communities where we work and live. Our employees participate in a huge amount of community and fundraising activities throughout the year and Innospec is proud to support them.

PenFed Foundation Military Heros fund, USA
Our Fuel Specialties and Oilfield Business teams in the US are proud to be long term supporters of the PenFed Foundation Military Heros fund. In 2019 they raised US$231,000 through their annual golf fundraising tournaments increasing the amount raised by our employees, customers and partners since 2007 to over US$1 million.
Unfortunately, COVID-19 restrictions prevented us from hosting our annual Fuel Specialties and Oilfield charity golf tournaments in 2020. Nevertheless, we are pleased to report that we managed to raise US$70,000 to help PenFed continue to provide financial support to veterans and service members during the pandemic.
Business contributions to charity in 2020
Our Performance Chemicals site in Salisbury, US partnered with the Clean the World Foundation to donate 19 tonnes of our surfactant Pureact SNDT-SAF. This will be used by the charity to manufacture soap bars to support hygiene in developing countries. Millions of deaths each year are caused by preventable hygiene and water-related illnesses.
Expanding our long-standing partnership with Nuevo Polymers, we teamed up with a local NGO in India in 2020 to help farmers struggling to earn an income in areas suffering from drought. Our Activsoft Guar partnership encourages local people to grow guar. This natural based raw material is used as an ingredient in the manufacture of our Activsoft range that in turn is used by our customers to make sulfate-free personal care products. The partnership provides free guar seed to every farmer that takes part.
