From a Cookson document on; CORPORATE SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY Acting responsibly around your world, we find the following information :

The community
Cookson people all around the world are involved in community projects. Here are just a few examples. Every member of staff at Vesuvius India contributed one day’s salary to help those affected by the December 2004 tsunami disaster. They also provide generous assistance to a number of Indian organisations working to improve the health and education of underprivileged children. In addition, they support the development of young entrepreneurs within their local communities, helping them to create small businesses, many of which become suppliers to Vesuvius. Freezing temperatures and rain did little to deter Electronics’ employees in Altoona, USA from raising money in the American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life campaign. Recognition for their efforts came with the Rookie of the Year award in their first year of participation in the event. Cookson Precious Metals assists community organisations including YMCA after school programmes and facility development, as well as helping inner-city children through organisations which work with disadvantaged, special needs programmes such as the National Council of Community Justice in New York.  See Full Document
