Hexion’s strong relationship with the communities in which we live and serve has enabled it to participate in projects that benefit their future. Our charitable contributions primarily focus on causes that support children, the less fortunate, health and wellness, and Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) education at all levels.
Hexion’s headquarters was presented with the Columbus Green Spot Certification in recognition of the company’s commitment to creating a more sustainable workplace and community. The Columbus Green Spot Certification recognizes businesses in Columbus, Ohio that make commitments to deploy environmentally-focused programs in five categories: engagement, 3R’s (reduce, reuse, recycle), water conservation, energy conservation, and transportation.
Hexion’s community outreach effort partnered with EcoMecar, has now reached more than 5,000 students and 100,000 people in the village of Montenegro, Brazil and neighboring areas through the Safe and Friendly City and Live Better campaigns. Hexion provides financial and volunteer support to educate elementary school students on safety and recycling, and provides uniforms and holiday presents to the students.
There was significant overgrowth of invasive vegetation around Hexion’s facility in Springfield, Oregon. Along with the invasive vegetation, site alarms were being tripped and the local police were being called to the facility several times a week due to criminal activity. Hexion associates partnered with community members to responsibly remove the invasive vegetation and then cleaned the area. As a result of improving the area by the plant there is now a reduced amount of crime; and, the surrounding wildlife continues to flourish.
