Community Involvement

At Huntsman, we believe it is our responsibility to make a difference in the lives of others in our communities. We support a variety of social causes, which includes cancer research, educational initiatives, global aid, and preventing homelessness and domestic violence, among others. We encourage personal involvement and helping individuals within our communities.

Our Huntsman India site, located in Mumbai, began transforming surrounding areas in October 2018 by building healthy communities and taking learning beyond the classroom. In association with the Freedom for You Foundation, the site launched its mobile medical ambulance at Yadav Nagar in Navi Mumbai (Maharashtra). The mobile health clinic assists surrounding communities by building awareness on government health schemes and medical insurance. The mobile medical ambulance also runs a School Health and Hygiene Education Project. In addition to building heathy communities, the Mumbai site is taking learning beyond the classroom. As part of the site’s interaction with the Lighthall community, a STEM Learning Project was launched. In association with Spandan NGO, this initiative focuses on generating interest in young minds, specifically in the areas of science, technology, engineering and mathematics, through experimental learning.

Huntsman Polyurethanes' site in Colombia is situated in Cartagena's low-income, industrial district of El Bosque, and has long stood as a source of support for both industry and the community. The site has found meaningful fulfillment within the community through the Huntsman Colombia Foundation, which was established in 2004 to promote physical and mental health education and productive choices among its neighbors. The non-profit organization provides a variety of health and social services to children and adults throughout the neighborhood, serving four vital needs: health, housing, education, and employment options. Huntsman employees serve as the organization's administrative staff, providing hands-on support to the volunteers, medical professionals, and thousands of patients they have served since the program began.

There are many programs that encourage our associates to get involved in local community initiatives—fighting cancer in the U.S., turtle breeding sites in Malaysia, and many more. In the UK, we have a number of initiatives to support local charities on a matched funding basis. We also get involved with local schools by supporting their fundraising events.
