We are committed to improving the communities where we work, live and play, and partner with our employees on various outreach projects throughout the year.
Through the Axeon SP 3D (Dollars for Doers & Donors) Program, the company directly supports its local communities and channels company donations to causes that Axeon SP employees personally support financially or through volunteerism. The company also develops and executes strategic partnerships with community organizations that strengthen and support our mission, and generally improve the outlook for our neighbors.
Axeon Specialty Products employees whole-heartedly embrace our local United Way agencies by participating in our annual employee campaigns. Additionally, over the past 24 years, our Paulsboro, NJ refinery has hosted an annual golf tournament to benefit the Muscular Dystrophy Association, raising over $1.6 million to support research and clinical trials to find a cure for MDA and to provide services such as Summer Camp for children impacted by the disease.
Community Advisory Panels
Axeon Specialty Products is committed to open dialogue and regular engagement with the communities where we operate through participation in Community Advisory Panels. A Community Advisory Panel (CAP) provides a forum for two-way communication between industry and local citizens. We are a member of the Paulsboro & Gibbstown Community Advisory Panel (GAPCAP), comprised of six area industry members and community leaders, facilitated by an independent consultant. The GAPCAP has been in existence for more than 20 years, meeting regularly to review plant safety and environmental performance, stay abreast of emergency preparedness and response capabilities, plan and deliver educational outreach on shelter-in-place and general industry awareness to school children, business leaders and seniors, and discuss other mutual concerns and interests.
