Making a positive difference around the world

Our approach to Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is practical in nature and based on volunteerism, engagement, and corporate giving, it allows us to support key Sustainable Development Goals: community engagement initiatives. We strive to ENGAGE with our people, communities and society to drive progress together. In support of the UN Sustainable Development Goals, it is essential for Nouryon to be a good corporate citizen and global business partner by supporting the communities where our employees live and work and identify where we can make the most impact. As a global organization, it is important for us to work with diverse populations and develop partnerships with companies that share our philosophy of inclusion, collaboration, sustainability and giving back to the communities in which we operate. 

Key CSR focus areas are:

  • STEM Education (science, technology, engineering and mathematics)
  • Sustainability and Environmental Stewardship
  • Safety & Health
  • Accelerating a high-performance and innovation culture

Partnering for a Sustainable Future

We look for partners that are aligned with our Code of Ethics, while also valuing the importance of the events and activities we host in which our employees and the community can participate.

We have also identified key learning institutions and universities around the  world where we collaborate and connect for internships, talent acquisition,  research, and learning and development opportunities. Through mentorships, STEM programming and community engagement, our global university relations programming offers both a literal and figurative stage for our speaker’s series.

Corporate Sponsorships

Nouryon is proud to have two key Corporate Sponsorships with the Philadelphia Eagles and The Ajax Football Club (Amsterdam Soccer Team).

We partner with them for many Corporate Social Responsibility and Employee Engagement initiatives, including the Nouryon All-Pro Teachers Program, Eagles Autism Challenge, and the Ajax Foundation to provide kids in need useful items for school and sporting activities.


Community & Employee Engagement

Our global CSR framework and outreach will continue to connect our business goals and company values to the development of and engagement with our most important asset – our people. As we continue to grow our CSR efforts throughout our operating territory, our commitment to the community will include mentoring, working with local non-profits and providing assistance and expertise where needed.

As a company, we are inspired by the many ways in which our employees engage with the communities in our operating territory and we are proud to help contribute to a more sustainable future.

Inaugural Employee Global Month of Service

Throughout September 2022, Nouryon hosted a global opportunity to connect, grow personally, and do good for the communities in which we operate. For the first time, over the course of one month, our employees around the world worked closely with local partners and nonprofit  organizations that share our philosophy of inclusion, collaboration, sustainability, and volunteerism. This resulted in 24 projects across eight countries, with more than 500 volunteers and countless service hours. The work, which included preparing and donating back-to-school supplies and providing access to Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) and safety education, benefited underserved children in communities around the world. Twenty community partners/non-profits were supported, including:
