Community involvement is the hallmark of our company and I encourage each of you to step up and help us reach our goal of 100K hours. By doing this, it’s going to change each of us individually – who we are, how we feel about the world and the compassion we have for one another. I see evidence of that every time I have the opportunity to go out and volunteer with you around the world.
At Celanese, we’ve dedicated ourselves to contributing to the prosperity of the communities where we live and work. As part of our corporate social responsibility efforts, we’ve launched a bold new initiative to improve the world through volunteer service. Our Chairman and CEO Mark Rohr has challenged all of our employees to step out into their communities and make a difference. We want our employees to give back by donating their time and talents to benefit those in need. If every employee volunteers 16 hours we will reach our collective goal of 100,000 hours in 2016.
Follow Your Heart - Volunteer for the Agency of Your Choice
Where and when our employees volunteer is entirely their choice. Celanese organizes volunteer opportunities, and employees can also identify agencies to volunteer that support causes that are close to their heart. They can take part in any of the Celanese Foundation activities the company supports – like the Celanese International Impact Program (CIIP), local days of caring or Global Impact Month.
Employees Raise for Every Volunteer Hour
For every hour an employee volunteers, the Celanese Foundation will provide them with a USD “Cause Card” to invest back into their local community. This digital gift card can be used to donate toward any qualifying 501(c)3 organizations. There is no limit to the number of hours an employee can volunteer – or to the number of dollar gifts the company will provide.
