We support our communities through a range of activities and charitable contributions, providing diverse and valuable interactions with community members. Here are some highlights.
We have a long-term Nutrition Development Program partnership in Minera del Altiplano, Argentina. Through this program, we ensure that four dining rooms in Antofagasta de la Sierra schools are given nutritionally-balanced lunches. The objective of the program is to ensure children and pregnant women receive proper nutrition for growth and development.
Each year, Livent China holds a safety event for all employees and their families. The 2017 event focused on safety in different areas of life—including safety at home, at school, and during daily activities and work. Employees and their families learned about the plant's safety performance and practices, attended workshops, and viewed safety videos, while children played games and answered questions on daily safety activities and behavior. Participants toured the plant, experiencing its safety-first practices firsthand.
Our Bromborough facility has a long-standing partnership with Claire House (https://www.clairehouse.org.uk/), most recently donating funds to the organization through their Gold Coin Initiative in 2017. Beverley Burns, Livent Sales Administrator, received the Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service (QAVS) in 2018 for her contributions to the Claire House Children’s Hospice. This is the highest award given to volunteer groups across the UK for service to the local community.
Livent employees from Bessemer City and Charlotte, NC, volunteered at the local Second Harvest Food Bank Metrolina on the morning of November 2, 2018. For three hours, the team sorted items that were randomly boxed up and donated by CVS pharmacy. The items were then sorted by category so they could be shared with other partnering agencies and homeless shelters. This is the 10th time that we have volunteered at this local food bank.
