Our Sponsoring Approach: Linked to Our Businesses
In the communities where we operate, Lonza is committed to having a positive impact. We are neighbors, a vital source of jobs, a charitable sponsor of local civic and cultural projects, and often a significant contributor to local economies. While our financial donations are important, 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 distinctive difference and which are linked to our businesses.
