We commit to being good corporate citizens, upstanding stewards of our local environmental resources, and good neighbors with Unshakable Integrity, one of our values. This is the driving force behind our Vibrant Communities goal to invest $50 million in our communities by 2030. We aim to enhance the communities where we live and operate by increasing access to science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) education; engaging in safety initiatives; and expanding sustainable environment programs.

Expanding our STEM Education Programs
We have committed over $4 million to launch the Chemours Future of Engineering, Science, Trades and Technology School Partnership Program (ChemFEST), a global school partnership program aimed at building a diverse STEM talent pipeline. In 2022, Chemours celebrated its first anniversary of ChemFEST by hosting students at our state-of-the-art research facility, Chemours Discovery Hub, in Newark, Delaware, for an engaging day of science. The EastSide Charter School and Serviam Girls Academy students participated in exciting demos that explored the science of cooling to better understand the clean energy transition and learn about hydrogen fuel cells.
