Community engagement

Avantor® creates a better world in the communities in which we operate.

We do this through volunteering, participating in community events, and donating goods and dollars. Each location looks for opportunities to be a good neighbor in the communities where we work. For our associates, this engagement helps improve camaraderie, strengthen our team and provides a sense of pride. We are equally proud to have our associates representing Avantor in our communities.

Wellness initiatives

Wellness champions around the globe focus on identifying community events that promote health, such as walks, 5K races and triathlons. Associates and their families often join these events. Ideally, these events also include a giving component to an organization that is aligned with the mission of the Avantor Foundation. Avantor also supports and promotes our associates who are participating in other events by sharing success stories and making donations through the Avantor Foundation’s matching program.

Donation drives

Our locations will often support local organizations through hosting a variety of drives, ranging from canned goods to clothing and toys.
