LANXESS Community Day 2012, held on April 14, 2012, brought together about 200 employees from all the business units in Brazil to work in charitable institutions in the states of Pernambuco, Rio de Janeiro, Rio Grande do Sul and São Paulo.

"The second edition of LANXESS Community Day was even better. Our employees and partners are aware of the need and we doubled the number of participants and beneficiaries," said Marcelo Lacerda, CEO LANXESS in Brazil.
The employees at the production plant in Cabo de Santo Agostinho and the Recife office worked with the children on Project Samuel – at the Social Life Centre, in the Pirapama neighborhood in Cabo.

The space belongs to the Guadalajara high school, which has about 500 students. LANXESS’ partners played an important role in donating equipment and helping out in the activities.
