Communities

Around the world, Koppers facilities serve as key contributors to local economies by providing jobs and tax revenues to towns and municipalities. Additionally, Koppers strives to be a responsible neighbor by engaging with communities to understand their concerns, communicating clearly about company operations and supporting the causes most important to local needs.

Caring for Our Communities

Every year, Koppers outreach initiatives connect employee time and talent with local organizations. For example, in 2015, Koppers employees volunteered at the 41st Annual Career Conference sponsored by the Chemical Industry Council of Illinois and the Illinois Chemical Education Foundation. Koppers employees led interactive exhibits and demonstrations for middle and high school students interested in pursuing a career in science and chemistry.
