We at LANXESS believe that Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) activities should look beyond our business boundaries and be directly beneficial to the local community where we operate.
The CSR activities carried out at Jhagadia so far are:
Chemistry Kit Donation:
As a part of its commitment towards education and its support towards science education at elementary school level, LANXESS donated chemistry kits to four schools namely, Kapalsadi school, Fulwadi school, St. Xaviers School and Dewan Dhanjishah High School and College, located near LANXESS site in Jhagadia.
Each of these chemistry kit consists of an experiment case, a box with additional equipment and instruction manuals. The manuals have description and instructions for conducting ten different experiments based on water solubility. The working materials and experiments are adapted to the needs, knowledge, and abilities of primary school-age children. These kits, being portable, are convenient for schools which do not have science rooms or laboratories.
