We aspire to be a business with a positive impact on its local environment and throughout the entire value chain, one that contributes to improving the overall well-being of all the parts of society we have an effect on.
With our community support program we hope to have a positive impact on the communities our business directly or indirectly affects. We will work to reduce inequalities, promote healthy habits, restore local ecosystems and ultimately become an inclusive business, in this way contributing to society as a whole.

We contribute to making the local economy more dynamic by hiring local suppliers from Tarragona and Catalonia, and also by offering stable employment to 94% local area and collaborating with local organisations of a social nature

Awakening interest in science and technology
ELIX, as part of its volunteering initiatives, participates in the Inspira STEAM project of the University of Deusto, through the Rovira i Virgili University. Inspira STEAM is a pioneering project that fosters interest in scientific-technological careers among women, based on raising awareness and career guidance actions voluntarily given by professionals from the world of research, science and technology. During the 2021-2022 academic year, a total of eight ELIX employees participated as mentors, allowing girls and boys in the 6th grade of primary education from different schools in the province of Tarragona to gain first-hand experience of their day-to-day work.
ELIX collaborates with this project through a collaboration agreement with the Rovira i Virgili University Foundation. Repte Experimenta is a training programme aimed at awakening interest in scientific careers among boys and girls in the first and second years of ESO (aged between 11 and 13 years). ELIX Polymers offers financial and active support for the programme: we are scientific sponsors of a group of students and of the awards.
