We remain steadfast in our commitment to running a business that values the safety of our workforce and communities and the sustainability of our operations above all other considerations.
Safety is the foundation of our culture and our highest priority. Everyone at Chevron Phillips Chemical works to ensure that we all go home safely, every day.
Among our peers in the industry, our personal and process safety outcomes and environmental performance are excellent. We still strive for continuous improvement, however, and we will not stop working toward our goal of achieving zero injuries and incidents.
We have developed a system of core concepts and programs to help drive continuous improvement in our safety performance. One of these tools is our Guiding Principles, a set of beliefs that influence how we work:
- Work safely or not at all.
- There is always time to do it right.
- If it’s worth doing, do it better.
Sustainability means keeping the health and safety of our workforce paramount in our daily operations, being a responsible steward of the environment, creating the chemical building blocks for products that will advance society and exceed customer expectations, and acting responsibly and ethically across our global business dealings.
We strive continuously to reduce our environmental impact. We focus on reducing usage of the resources needed to make our products, including energy, water and raw materials. At the same time, we work to reduce emissions generated through the lifecycle of our products, from sourcing and transporting raw materials to the end or renewal of their life.
Being a trusted petrochemical leader requires open communication and active engagement, and we report on our sustainability performance annually.
