Examples of Community Success – 2012

Asia: Flood relief efforts praised
To support relief efforts for victims of 2011 flooding in Thailand, Visteon made cash donations to the Thai Red Cross Society. Employees also raised funds and conducted initiatives that carried into 2012 to help people affected by the flooding. The funds were used to purchase useful items packed into kits and directed to flood-affected areas north of Bangkok. The flooding in Thailand was the worst the country has seen in more than 50 years.

South America: Employees in Brazil help local flood victims
The Amazon region of Brazil near the banks of the Negro and Solimões Rivers experienced significant flooding as the rivers rose to an all-time high. To help the disaster victims, Manaus employees organized a campaign to donate food and clothing to affected employees, their families and neighbors.

Europe: UK employees promote engineering careers for girls
Employees from Visteon Engineering Services (VES) supported the local career fair at St. Bernard’s High School for girls in Southend, UK. The main emphasis of the event was to encourage the young women to consider careers in engineering and business. Students age 15-17 were invited to attend the event with their parents to meet with professionals and discuss their real-life experiences. The fair included representatives from many companies covering mechanical, precision, electrical and civil engineering, as well as performing arts and media, information technology and the financial sector.

Europe: Visteon hosts Girls Day in Kerpen
'Future Prospects for Girls' is the title of a national career day initiative in Germany. At the end of April, Visteon in Kerpen hosted 30 young students as part of the ‘Girl’s Day’ campaign. The event was designed to show the different aspects of working at Visteon and encourage the participants to consider a technical discipline as a career. The event included practical tasks such as creating a flower out of various materials, a lean manufacturing game and interactive trials on computer-based simulation tools.

Europe: UK employees pitch in
Visteon Engineering Services (VES) employees in the UK left their jobs for the day and volunteered to transform the outside learning areas at the local Melbourne Park Primary and Nursery School in Chelmsford. The volunteers painted fences, sheds, play equipment and playhouses; weeded and replanted flower beds and vegetable patches; created a safe landing zone under the play equipment and built a dry brick wall – and even began building a sensory garden for the children.

Asia: CSR Run
As a way to incorporate sportsmanship into Visteon’s long-term commitment to social responsibility, employees at the Visteon Asia Pacific office (VAPI office) in Shanghai recently participated in the J.P. Morgan Corporate Challenge 2012. A team of 45 participants – one in four employees at the VAPI office – supported the charity event, a 5.6 km race. The J.P. Morgan Corporate Challenge 2012 donates the entry fees to a local non-profit organization. For the 2012 event, donations were dedicated to Compassion for Migrant Children, a non-profit organization that benefits China’s urban migrant children, primarily through community-based social and educational programs.

Asia: Giving Tree continues to grow
For the fifth consecutive year, employees at Visteon’s Asia Pacific offices participated in the Giving Tree donation program. Sixty gift bags, full of new clothes, toys and school supplies, were distributed to underprivileged children in Shanghai. Giving Tree is a charity program organized by Community Center Shanghai, in collaboration with the Shanghai Charity Foundation.

Asia: Visteon employees in China participate in community charitable events
