In 2016 we launched our Innospec Cares program. The program encourages our employees to engage with our local communities by nominating local charities and community initiatives to receive a donation from a new corporate fund. The fund makes available donations to 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.
2019 Volunteering Days Scheme
Innospec's aspiration is to deliver real benefit to our local communities by hands on support to organisations, and making a difference to their daily operations. New for 2019, we have introduced Volunteering Days. Our employees have the opportunity to spend 1 day a year volunteering to support a cause of their choice by giving their time or skills. Watch this space for new updates.
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.
Now in its fourth year, the Innospec Cares program once again demonstrates the great fundraising efforts of our employees. In 2018, match-funding applications went up to 56% and we are pleased to donate $2 for every $1 raised.
