LANXESS receives Merit Certificate at Global CSR Summit Awards
Jan '09
Specialty chemicals group LANXESS AG received a Merit Certificate at the Global CSR Summit Awards 2009 held in Singapore on 14 January. LANXESS submitted projects for the Best Environmental Excellence Award and the Best Community Program Award categories.

At the event, 12 awards and 20 Merit Certificates were given out. The recognition places LANXESS among a selected group of about 35 companies which received the global accolades. Kaye Lim, LANXESS Vice President of Corporate Communications for Asia Pacific, said, “We're pleased that our CSR and sustainability programs are gaining visibility and recognition at the global level. At LANXESS, CSR is both a corporate ethos and personal conviction shared by the management team and employees across various countries.”

The Global CSR Awards, organized by The Pinnacle Group International (TPGI Pte Ltd), aim to recognize CSR activities which are linked as closely as possible to satisfying or even delighting company stakeholders through long term relationships rather than high profile one off projects.

It is hoped that the Global CSR Awards will provide an external seal of approval to help boost staff morale and commitment, especially for those involved with volunteering activities.

LANXESS is a leader in specialty chemicals with sales in 2007 of EUR 6.61 billion and currently around 15,000 employees in 21 countries. The company is represented at 44 production sites worldwide. The core business of LANXESS is the development, manufacture and sale of plastics, rubber, intermediates and specialty chemicals.
