LyondellBasell (NYSE: LYB) today announced a donation of 250.000 Euros to the German Red Cross to assist communities devasted by the heavy floods which struck the region almost two weeks ago. In addition, LyondellBasell will match every Euro donated by their employees in Europe to the Aktion Deutschland Hilft, a joint association of German relief organizations.

“We have seen firsthand the devastation resulting from the flooding across Europe, with our employees and the communities where we operate being greatly impacted. Through the strength and compassion demonstrated by our workforce, we felt compelled to do more to help others in need,” said Jean Gadbois, LyondellBasell senior vice president, Europe, Asia & International Manufacturing. “We are very grateful to the Red Cross and all other aid organizations who are directly involved in the rescue and clean-up operations.”

More than 1,000 rescue operations have been carried out in the hardest-hit areas since July 15. The German Red Cross plays a key role as the central aid organization and has deployed thousands of volunteers to provide aid and support to everybody who is affected.
