Arkema teams are involved in philanthropic initiatives that support local communities with activities that focus on some of the core beliefs of the company, such as education, diversity, and inclusion. This summer, Arkema partnered with Habitat for Humanity for two events, and hosted the annual Science Teacher Program, which promotes STEM education

In August, Arkema participated in its first volunteer event as an official partner of Habitat for Humanity Philadelphia. Arkema employees, led by their regional manager Tony O’Donovan, joined Habitat’s professional contractors to work on Habitat’s 21 affordable homes project.

Through its three-year sponsorship with Habitat Philadelphia, Arkema will provide a total of $330,000 in funding, donate its sustainable building products, offer its technical expertise, and contribute employee volunteers to help build homes. Arkema’s contributions will help Habitat Philadelphia increase homeownership rates for people of color, creating strong and stable communities.

Arkema hosted the annual Science Teacher Project. Researchers and scientists across the United States spend a few days providing local teachers with new resources and lessons to make STEM learning fun for their students. This year, more than 30 local teachers benefited from the program.

 “It’s imperative that we continue to inspire future generations to pursue careers in STEM and manufacturing as opportunities in these fields continues to grow,” said O’Donovan, CEO.
