By 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 three areas:
Science and Education
Health and Social Welfare
Culture and Community
In the 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. In short, Lonza and our employees are “citizens”
of these communities; and we do our utmost to contribute to the quality of the
life that we share.
Sustainable value for Lonza comes not only from investing in the
communities where we live and work, but also from investing in the wider world
where we see opportunities to contribute to sustainability and the greater
good. Sponsorships and philanthropic donations are an integral part of how we
express our corporate social responsibility.
We want to be a reliable long-term and active partner and 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.
While our financial donations are vital, our employees also play a
critical role by volunteering in programs and projects in our priority areas of
education, the environment, culture, health and social welfare.
