Community Outreach

The communities in which Livent operates are vital to the company’s success.

We support our communities through a range of activities and charitable contributions, providing diverse and valuable interactions with community members. Here are some highlights.

Argentina

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.

China

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.

India

Livent’s facility in India funded furniture and supplies at two local state community schools (Bandlaguda Higher Secondary School and Primary School) which included wooden school benches, tables, and backpacks. Building repairs were also completed. We also completed structural repairs and painting of the Bandlaguda Government Primary School.

United Kingdom

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.

United States

For a 5th year, Livent sponsored and participated in the STEM (Science Technology Engineering and Mathematics) Outdoor Learning Fair, where company-driven learning stations helped introduce over 600 fifth grade students to STEM skills. During the fair, Livent employees helped students make batteries from materials commonly found at home (potatoes, oranges, lemons, nails, coins), and gave students backpacks filled with lithium-related items, including flashlights, safety glasses, periodic tables and pamphlets).
