About Our Major Sponsor:
At its core, INEOS is a global chemical, manufacturing, and energy company. INEOS manufactures raw ingredients for products that are used in everyday life. It harnesses science and technology to solve complex problems on a local and global scale. It accepts the challenge of reducing the impact that society and industry have on the planet. It constantly learns while setting bold goals and making things happen. This is made possible because of its scale and unique approach – INEOS is a privately-owned business with a federal structure, which thrives on clearly defined values and the desire to get things done.
INEOS also invests in and supports a wide range of charitable initiatives in the fields of health, education, conservation, and its local communities. It established the INEOS Oxford Institute for Antimicrobial Resistance to help develop new drugs for animals and humans, as well as to promote more responsible use of current antibiotics. It supports several conservation projects in Africa and Iceland, which aim to preserve wildlife and the natural environment. The company also has a keen interest in human performance, supporting challenges that test athletes’ limits in professional and amateur soccer, rugby, running, bicycling, sailing, and Formula 1 racing.
INEOS thrives on challenge and pushing the limits of what’s possible. It encourages its people to do the same. Third-year graduates have the opportunity to train for an African experience that helps them expand their limits, build their fitness, and show them what they’re truly capable of. INEOS’s support of The Daily Mile is a natural extension of this, helping children in communities across the globe to get healthier, happier and to learn what they’re capable of.
I believe The Daily Mile will have a huge impact on young people's lives, helping children across the US to be fitter, healthier and happier. I'm delighted to be supporting The Daily Mile, and hope that every child has the opportunity to take part in this fantastic initiative.Colin Jackson, Olympic 110m hurdles Medallist
