cultivating relationships and contributing our knowledge, expertise, logistics
and financial support, Lonza is creating sustainable value for our communities
around the world. With our commitment to ethical, social and environmental
responsibility and sustainability, Lonza supports events, projects and programs
directly linked to Lonza's employees and sites. Our sponsoring activities focus
on the following five priority giving areas:
communities where we operate, Lonza is much more than a faceless corporation.
We are neighbors, a vital source of jobs, a charitable sponsor of local schools
and civic and cultural projects, and often a significant contributor to local
economies. While our financial donations are vital, our employees also play a
critical role by volunteering in programs and projects in our priority areas.
We want to be
a reliable, long-term and active partner and to engage at the earliest possible
stage of any community project we sponsor in order to optimize the use of
available resources. Accordingly, we focus our resources on a small number of
selected projects where our engagement can make a significant difference,
rather than on a vast number of projects.
