Our Commitment to Sustainability
We believe we are successful only when our technical capabilities are matched with an intense commitment to sustainable manufacturing that ensures the well-being of our employees, contractors, customers and the communities in which we operate.
Throughout our 50-year history, our employees have embraced this challenge and demonstrate their continued efforts every day. We appreciate the responsibility of what it means to work safely, respect the communities in which we operate, and work hard at protecting the environment. We are in an era where sustainability is not a “nice-to-have,” but an essential component of success for our customers and our business.
Our leadership in environmentally-friendly products is enabling breakthroughs across a broad range of markets. While our innovation efforts are having a substantial impact for our customers, we constantly strive to deliver these innovations on an ever more efficient footprint. Increasingly, customers challenge us to think holistically about our footprint and find ways to balance the trade-offs between the clear benefits of new products and materials and the long-term lifecycle costs of our production process.
Our commitment to sustainability is exemplified through our recognition from the United Nations’ Environmental Programme (UNEP) Award. UNEP is the leading global environmental authority that sets the global environmental agenda, promotes the coherent implementation of the environmental dimension of sustainable development within the United Nations system and serves as an authoritative advocate for the global environment.
