Intensifying Our Environmental Stewardship

As we continue to pave our path forward, Chevron Phillips Chemical realizes the need to promote environmental stewardship and resource efficiency within our company and the communities where we operate. In 2018, we continued to dedicate time and resources in engaging in educational programs focused on increasing awareness on how we can all be better stewards to our environment. 

Sustainable Solutions Incorporated at New Hong Kong Office

In our new office in Hong Kong, sustainability concepts for work efficiency and environmental improvement were incorporated into the design. It’s one of several Chevron Phillips Chemical offices around the globe that have been designed in a more ergonomic and streamlined way. Many of our facilities also feature recycling programs, water decanters and reusable cups to encourage employees to minimize their aste.  


Celebrating Earth Day 2018
As part of our ongoing commitment to promote environmental stewardship, our company recognized Earth Day 2018 in various ways. From conducting beach clean-ups in the communities where our facilities call home to educating our employees about the many ways they can recycle, Chevron Phillips Chemical is dedicated to promoting ways everyone can help protect the environment and conserve natural resources.

 
Recognizing Arbor Day: Works of Art
In observation of Arbor Day, Chevron Phillips Chemical reached out to Elementary School students in Sweeny, Texas and asked them to create art showcasing what Arbor Day meant to them. The theme was "I am Groot," referring to the Marvel comic character who is a tree-like creature. The team wanted students to think about ways to protect the environment and preserve nature when creating a picture. Our employees selected 12 drawings to be featured in the 2019 shift calendar, and students who created the top three selected pieces received a gift card. The calendar is posted in offices around our Old Ocean facility. Our employees also donated 130 crepe myrtle trees to area third graders and discussed with the students the importance of caring for and preserving trees.
 


Birds of a feather

In April, Sweeny and Old Ocean Facilities donated to the Friends of the Brazoria Wildlife Refuge for their Migration Celebration. The donation supported reptile encounters, a butterfly exhibit and swamp adventures. It also helped bring programs such as large bird demonstrations to local schools. The Refuge assists the Texas Mid-Coast National Wildlife Refuge Complex in managing the conservation and restoration of wildlife, plant resources and their habitats within the Brazoria, San Bernard and Big Boggy National Wildlife Refuges.
