With 37 facilities across five continents, we touch thousands of people every day; helping people live better healthier lives. We are dedicated to being present and pitching in to improve the communities where we live, work and serve.
Catalent has a long history of giving back to our neighbors. Through “Catalent Cares”, employees have been organizing volunteer projects and charitable giving for decades.
We celebrate the spirit of giving back to our communities during the Catalent Month of Service (CMS) in November each year. During our second CMS in 2018, we had more than 800 volunteers across 31 Catalent sites give back to communities through service projects.
Catalent also celebrates Earth Month annually in April, leading up to International Earth Day on April 22 to advance our environmental commitments and minimize the environmental impact of our operations. Employees across the globe volunteered to revitalize green spaces, host recycling drives, eliminate waste and organize information sessions and workshops.
The Catalent Cares Matching Gift program is a direct result of listening and responding to employee requests to support our communities and is strongly aligned with our commitment to patients. The program supports personal employee donations to health & human service and environmental charities and provides a 1-for-1 corporate match.
Our community grant program provides grants to non-profits that support our mission of helping people live better, healthier lives. Through our site-based community ambassadors and engagement teams, we identify and invite organizations to apply for support if they work in the following areas:
- Promote the delivery of health-related services and treatment to patients; and
- Encourage STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Math) education, training and job placement initiatives.
We aim to leverage the skills, products, services, and thought-leadership of our business units and employees to make an even greater impact in the community.
In 2018, Catalent initiated a partnership with Tiny Earth, a non-profit program that accelerates the discovery of new antibiotics through a global network of student researchers. Catalent’s support will help Tiny Earth increase access to the program, encourage more students to pursue STEM careers, and help address the growing threat of antibiotic-resistant diseases.
The Catalent Community Engagement Ambassador Network, made up of more than 40 employees, representing our sites around the world, advises, promotes and helps grow our programs. They are the backbone of Catalent’s rapidly growing community programs and show that #catalentcares.
