Novelis pledged to donate $1 million to Habitat for Humanity over the next 5 years in honor of the company’s fifth annual “One Novelis Volunteer Month” during October, when Novelis employees around the world join together to serve the communities they call home.
The pledge, which represents a 100 percent increase over Novelis’ financial contribution to Habitat for Humanity during the previous five years, continues Novelis’ support of Habitat for Humanity’s mission to build a world where everyone lives in a decent, safe and affordable home.
During this year’s One Novelis Volunteer Month, more than 200 employees at Novelis’ global headquarters in Atlanta helped build a home in 6 days with a local family in partnership with Atlanta Habitat for Humanity during the company’s fourth blitz build. Novelis employees are also volunteering at Habitat for Humanity builds in four other communities in the U.S., including Kennesaw and Greensboro, Georgia, Oswego, New York and Novi, Michigan, as well as in three locations in Korea: Seoul, Yeongju and Ulsan this fall.
“At Novelis, giving back to our communities is a critical part of who we are as a company. Through Habitat for Humanity and the many other local organizations we support year-round, our employees demonstrate time and again their unwavering commitment to service and their neighbors,” said Steve Fisher, president and chief executive officer, Novelis.
As a flagship company of the Aditya Birla Group, Novelis’ pledge further extends the commitment to Habitat for Humanity International made by the Aditya Birla Group. Novelis and Aditya Birla Group employees have partnered with Habitat for Humanity in Asia to help build homes with those in need of decent and affordable housing, as well as raise contributions to continue this important work through fundraising campaigns in both Asia and North America.
