We strongly believe that each one of us has a role to play in the communities around us, coming together to have a positive global impact. Whether we’re considering philanthropic investments or site operations, community needs and feedback are critical components of our decision-making process.
In 2018, we announced our Vibrant Communities goal—to invest $50 million in our communities to improve lives through increased access to STEM skills, safety initiatives, and sustainable-environment programs―with the hope of deepening our community relationships and advancing solutions to the needs of our communities. In 2019, we took our efforts even further. Through open and productive discussions, we deepened our relationships with community partners by conducting individual, site-specific outreach and programming efforts. The continuing dialogue has dramatically improved our ability to identify and address the greatest needs in our communities.
Building a Promising Future Together through Diversified Investments
In 2019, Chemours committed $2.5 million to the communities where we live and work, approving 56 grants across 19 locations and all regions, benefiting more than 1.2 million community members. Additionally, we developed our 2030 investment road map and set interim targets to help track our progress to our $50 million 2030 goal—and are pleased to have met our 2019 target.
