Sustainability - Community

We maintain a caring culture that thrives on the diversity of our employees, customers, and communities. People are the most significant contributors to the sustainability and success of our company. We believe that building and maintaining sound relationships with our communities makes us a better, stronger company, and good community relations are built on trust, respect and responsibility. We make every effort to conduct operations in a safe, clean, responsible manner, and we encourage our employees to volunteer their time and talents to making positive changes everywhere we live and work.

Health and Safety

The health and safety of our employees, contractors, neighbors and environment are of paramount importance to us. We believe safety is a shared responsibility, and it is central to everything we do.

Our multi-year EHS&S strategy, Our Journey to Zero, is a commitment to each other and our communities. It's blueprint for protecting personnel events, and a prime example of our brand philosophy: Performance by design. Caring by choice.™ 

  • We put the health and safety of all personnel before production.
  • We eliminate high severity, high potential incidents.
  • We maintain and operate a safe, secure and reliable workplace.
  • We actively protect the environment.

Responsible Care logo

As a member of the American Chemistry Council (ACC), we participate in the Responsible Care® program. In 2018, the ACC recognized our EHS strategy, “Our Journey to Zero,” with the Responsible Care® Initiative of the Year Award. The winner of this award is selected by attendees at the ACC’s annual Responsible Care and Sustainability Conference; it’s the only ACC award in which the winning company is chosen by its peers.

Employee and Contractor Health and Safety

Our exemplary record for employee and contractor health and safety is the result of diligent effort and constant vigilance on the part of our personnel at every level — especially the members of our EHS team. The results of their commitment and dedication have been recognized by numerous industry awards from organizations including:

  • Texas Chemical Council (TCC)
  • American Chemistry Council (ACC)
  • American Fuel and Petrochemical Manufacturers (AFPM)
  • International Rescue and Emergency Care Association (IRECA)

Operational Excellence

Our commitment to operating in a safe and responsible manner is exemplified by our Operational Excellence System (OES) — a global framework for managing the health and safety of our employees and contractors as well as operating responsibly within our communities. With its “plan-do-check-act” methodology, OES helps us conduct our business in a safe, secure, injury-free and environmentally responsible manner, reducing operational risks and promoting regulatory compliance.
