Whether raw materials, production, or transport, we utilize all possibilities to further reduce our ecological footprint.
Sustainable management always includes the common good. That is why we are socially committed wherever we are. Our focus is on education: as one of the world’s leading manufacturers of synthetic rubber, ARLANXEO aims to inspire young people for the sciences and introduce them to the exciting world of rubber. At our locations around the world, we support schools, universities and environmental projects with information, advice, and funding, for example.
Exciting experiments and journeys of discovery
In the Netherlands, ARLANXEO currently awards a scholarship to the United World College at our headquarters in Maastricht. And together with other local companies, we invite elementary school children on a journey of discovery at the Chemelot chemical park in Geleen.
In Germany, ARLANXEO cooperates with three schools near its Dormagen and Leverkusen locations, for example. The 14- to 15-year-old students attend workshops and companies and also receive internships, free learning material, and support with searching for an apprenticeship. To get young people excited about chemistry, ARLANXEO has donated test tubes, scales, and other equipment to schools – for exciting experiments in chemistry classes.
In Changzhou, China, ARLANXEO has entered into cooperation agreements with two universities: students at both Changzhou University and the Changzhou Institute of Engineering Technology can – among other things – apply for scholarships from ARLANXEO and complete practical courses at the company.
In Brazil, ARLANXEO has been active around its locations in Duque de Caxias, Cabo de Santo Agostinho, and Triunfo with the annual Ciclo Verde program: the funding competition honors outstanding social and environmentally friendly educational projects from the vicinity of the ARLANXEO sites. ARLANXEO employees are also involved themselves – for example, at the annual volunteer day, they have helped to renovate schools and taken part in environmental activities.
