Corning® Gorilla® Glass Supports the Fossey Fund
Corning® Gorilla® Glass is named for a gorilla’s attributes of toughness and beauty. Out of respect for these majestic animals, Corning Incorporated is proud to support the gorilla protection and monitoring efforts of the Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund International.
Continuing a more than 160-year tradition of innovation in materials science and glass technology, Corning® Gorilla® Glass is the most widely deployed damage-resistant cover glass for consumer
electronic devices. It helps protect the world’s coolest smartphones, tablets, notebooks, and digital signage from every-day wear and tear.
While Corning’s cover glass helps protect devices, the Fossey Fund is saving the beautiful animals that inspired the GorillaGlass marketing campaign. “The tough, yet sophisticated characteristics of these majestic animals represents the damage-resistance and visually stunning features of Gorilla Glass,” said Daniel F. Collins, division vice president of Corning’s Corporate Communications. “Corning is thrilled to aid these magnificent animals by supporting the Fossey Fund.”
Supporting gorillas through the Fossey Fund is a natural connection to Corning’s heritage and values. For more than 160 years, a sustained commitment to research and development fuels Corning’s ability to turn possibilities into breakthrough realities.
The Fossey Fund shares Corning’s passion for research and action through their world leading database and everyday monitoring efforts that support this highly endangered species,” explained Collins. “As a well-rounded organization committed to helping people and saving gorillas, the Fossey Fund also aligns with Corning’s seven values.”
Corning lives all seven of its values all the time and across the globe. These values (Quality, Integrity, Performance, Leadership, Innovation, Independence, and the Individual) define Corning’s relationships with employees, customers, and the communities in which the company operates in around the world.
As sponsor since October 2011, Corning is proud continue supporting the Fossey Fund and the organization’s gorilla conservation efforts.
