Lubrizol Advanced Materials India Helps Underprivileged Children

The concept of corporate social responsibility (CSR) is especially important in India and is central to many business discussions. At Lubrizol Advanced Materials India, we have launched a CSR program focused on the underprivileged children in our community.

Our CSR journey began with a Science in Action Day on May 4, 2013. Underprivileged students from S.A. Public School Mumbai toured our facility and even got to participate in laboratory demonstrations. Science and technology is always more interesting to students when they have the opportunity to see how chemicals are formulated,. This exposure helps to pique their interest in science. A corporate film on Lubrizol followed the interactive session.

To further support local and underprivileged families, we provided tarpaulins to a village near the Mumbai office. It’s currently the rainy season in India, and the roofs on villagers’ shanties do not provide enough protection from the heavy continuous rain. The tarpaulins help keep their homes dry. While we were there, we also provided clothing and stationery goods donated by our own employees.
