Community involvement

Water For People

Water is our most important resource, and Brenntag understands that not everyone in the world has access to clean and safe water. As a part of our sustainability efforts, we have chosen to work alongside Water For People as an opportunity to help provide safe water and sanitation to those who need it the most.

It's not just about building wells, installing toilets, and setting up pumps, but about creating long-term, sustainable change. Water For People talks to community members, governments, and business owners to find out what they need to feel healthy, safe, and empowered.

You be the chemist

We help promote the future of chemistry by our active involvement over the past several years with the Chemical Education Foundation (CEF) and their You Be the Chemist® (YBTC) Challenge. The Chemical Education Foundation, founded in 1989 and headquartered in Arlington, VA, is a nationally recognized, award winning non-profit organization committed to enhancing science education among every generation.

The YBTC Challenge is designed as a question-and-answer competition similar in format to a spelling bee, to encourage interest in chemistry among students at a young age. Students in grades 5 through 8 answer questions about important chemistry concepts, historical discoveries, and safety awareness.
