Strategic Partner

Eastman collaborates across the industry to promote environmental awareness and to advocate for positive change.

Bringing underwater robotics inland

Eastman’s education efforts to advance science, technology, engineering, arts and math (STEAM) hinge on strategic partnerships such as Marine Advanced Technology Education (MATE) to inspire students through real-world educational experienced to ensure a successful workforce and the future of ocean science research.

Conserving Ecology

Eastman advances large-scale, ecological work through its partnership with The Nature Conservancy, one of the world’s leading environmental organizations. We support the conservancy’s global efforts, which include land protection to preserve the habitats of giant pandas in China. We also support the conservancy’s research in nature preserves located in Shady Valley, Tennessee – a rare, high-elevation remnant of the last Ice Age and one of the most ecologically important regions in the Southern Appalachian Mountains.

Farm to Table

Eastman is a corporate partner for Appalachian Sustainable Development, a nonprofit organization that promotes improved access to healthy, garden-grown foods and sustainable agriculture and forestry in areas of Virginia and Tennessee. Currently, ASD supports nine programs that empower farmers and promote sustainability efforts. Eastman also participates in the ASD’s “Rooted in Appalachia” program by hosting a weekly farmers market at its Tennessee operations and corporate campus.
