Cooperation between universities and business brings recognized benefits for both. Businesses benefit from access to the latest scientific knowledge, skilled human capital, and high-tech equipment while helping universities to make teaching more relevant and engaging.

China

Littelfuse associates in Wuxi volunteer with a local organization to raise awareness in children about climate change. By building recycled toys, playing educational games, and answering children's questions about the environment, associates help to educate the next generation about the importance of recycling, the impact of waste, and the big difference that small changes can make.

"Environmental education provides important opportunities for children to become engaged in real-world issues," said Tod Zhu, plant manager. "If children learn to respect and care for the world they live in from a young age, they will help to preserve it for the next generation. It is our duty to teach them the skills they’ll need to become creative problem solvers and powerful advocates of protecting nature."

Litter and waste are more than unsightly. Trash that isn't properly disposed of can have serious consequences for the environment and local wildlife population. Associates from the Littelfuse Kaunas facility dedicate their time to participating in the international campaign 'Let’s Do It!', a springtime initiative that unites organizations and individuals from all over the country to pick up trash that has found its way to cities, suburbs, parks, river banks, and other areas during the winter months.

Blood donors save lives every day so accident victims and those in need of transfusions for surgeries can live. To do our part, Littelfuse associates in Kaunas host donation drives with the local blood bank.

“Donating blood is equal to saving lives,” said Arturas Romanis, EHS engineer. “Littelfuse is a socially responsible organization that promotes the culture of helping others, and I can think of no better way to give back to the community than to donate much-needed blood. It is also inspiring to see your colleagues feeling really proud of being able to contribute to a life-saving initiative like this.”

Littelfuse associates in Dongguan and Kunshan give back to local primary schools through an internal network called the L.O.V.E. (Littelfuse Optimistic Values Enrichment) Foundation, an initiative formed by associates wishing to give back to their community and spread the spirit of generosity in the organization and beyond. From donating air conditioning units when the temperature starts to rise and warm clothes in the winter, Littelfuse understands the value of providing children with an educational environment they can thrive in.
