Innospec Cares is our global charitable giving and volunteering program. The program encourages our employees to engage with our local communities by nominating local charities and community initiatives to receive a donation or to support through volunteering. Innospec Cares supports a wide range of local or national charities and community initiatives demonstrating support for:
- Disadvantaged Groups
- Human health and wellbeing
- Encouragement of education
- Environmental Projects
The fund is in addition to our other donations for charitable and community support.
Innospec's aspiration is to deliver real benefit to our local communities by giving hands on support to organisations and making a difference to their daily operations. Employees can now apply to spend a paid workday, once a year, to volunteer for their chosen charity or good cause.
Once again, our employees have shown how much they care for their local communities by raising money for a wide range of charities and good causes.
