HOUSTON and ROTTERDAM, Netherlands, Sept. 11, 2017 /PRNewswire/
-- LyondellBasell, one of the largest plastics, chemicals and refining
companies in the world, for the 18th consecutive year harnessed the power of
thousands of its employees and their family members on Global Care Day. During
this day of community engagement, 58 of LyondellBasell's manufacturing sites
and offices in 23 countries partnered with local community organizations to
meet needs in the areas of education, health and the environment.

Nearly 250 employees from LyondellBasell’s downtown tower volunteered at the
Houston Food Bank on the company’s 18th Annual Global Care Day event, during
which 58 manufacturing sites and offices performed community service projects
around the world.

Some examples of projects include:

  o Houston, Texas:
    Following the devastation of Hurricane Harvey, the company's operational
    headquarters in Houston chose to shift their project to help the Houston
    Food Bank, an organization that will play an integral part of the city's
    recovery following the massive storm. Volunteers produced the equivalent
    of a meal a minute while sorting, inspecting, processing and packing food.
    The Houston Food Bank is a member of Feeding America, the nation's largest
    non-governmental, domestic hunger relief organization, whose goal is to
    make food accessible to hungry people in their greatest times of need.

  o Pindamonhangaba, Brazil:
    Volunteers organized a blood drive that will help maintain the blood
    supplies in the hospitals of Vale do Paraíba. The company's manufacturing
    site partnered with the University of São Paulo's Taubaté' Hemonúcleo, an
    organization dedicated to promoting the importance of blood donations in
    the region.

  o Rayong, Thailand:
    Volunteers hosted a day of games and activities designed to cultivate
    children's critical thinking skills at the Pattaya Orphanage. Established
    nearly 40 years ago with a policy of turning no child away, the group
    focuses on promoting the well-being and development of children through
    health and education programs.

  o Rotterdam, The Netherlands:
    Volunteers participated in landscaping projects that rejuvenated and
    refurbished Kinderboederji de Kraal's Petting Zoo. The petting zoo is home
    to donkeys, llamas and horses, and provides a place for children to
    experience their first animal encounters in a safe, educational setting.

"There are many reasons why people volunteer, but no matter why each
individual chooses to give their time, we're grateful that employees are
dedicated to helping LyondellBasell's mission of being a responsible, good
neighbor in the communities where we operate," said Richard Roudeix,
LyondellBasell's senior vice president of Olefins & Polyolefins in Europe,
Asia and International. "Projects like Global Care Day unite the company
across the world and demonstrate that when we work together it is possible to
make a big impact." Over the past 18 years, LyondellBasell employees and their
families have cumulatively donated more than 179,000 volunteer hours on Global
Care Day.

"Seeing our employees come together following a storm that ravaged our region
was truly inspiring," said Paul Augustowski, LyondellBasell's senior vice
president of Olefins & Polyolefins for the Americas. "This year's Global Care
Day had a special meaning because it seemed as though every person on our
Houston-area team knows someone who has been personally impacted by this
storm. We were extremely grateful for the opportunity to make a big difference
in the community."
