Volunteer Days

Our annual, month-long community service initiative, Global Volunteer Days, unites Trinseo employees around the world for a common mission: being a good neighbor.

Our employees organize local volunteer events in their communities and donate their time to benefit nonprofit organizations of their choosing. In June 2016, hundreds of Trinseo employees around the world organized and participated in local volunteer events alongside family and friends for our third annual Volunteer Days. Events included:

  • Berwyn, Pennsylvania, U.S. — Harvesting vegetables for donation to a local food bank
  • Hsinchu, Taiwan — Coastal clean-up project
  • Merak and Jakarta, Indonesia — Tree planting for reforestation
  • Rheinmuenster, Germany — Gardening and hardscaping project at a home for the disabled
  • Samstagern, Switzerland — Clothing drive for people in Nepal who are still affected by the 2015 earthquake
  • Terneuzen, The Netherlands — Ride for the Roses race, which raised 115,000 euros for cancer research

Above and Beyond: Volunteer Days Make a Lasting Impact

In April 2016, Trinseo employees at the Midland, Michigan site were recognized with a “Golden Hammer Award” by the West Midland Family Center (WMFC) for their significant volunteer efforts during Volunteer Days in 2015.

Trinseo volunteers overhauled a wheelchair ramp and created an “initiatives course,” an outdoor adventure course that helps instill confidence and promote team-building skills among at-risk youth. The project was completed over the course of one week by 54 employees, who contributed a total of 276 volunteer hours.

“We were inspired by the commitment and energy that your team showed each day that you were here,” said a spokesperson for WMFC. “The contributions from Trinseo personnel were above and beyond what we expected, and many clients are enjoying the results of the work put in by your volunteers. You have certainly helped to make WMFC and our community a better place to live and play.”
