Product Responsibility


Chevron Phillips Chemical products can be found in a wide variety of household items.

Our polymers and petrochemicals are utilized in more than 70,000 consumer and industrial products, which in turn provide countless benefits to society — from preserving food to providing critical public utilities and much, much more.

We believe that our responsible business practices are tied to the performance of our company. We are committed to serve as a responsible business and good steward of the environment. We recognize that plastic waste in the environment is a rising global concern, and we are committed to raising awareness and ensuring that plastics are handled responsibly.

Operation Clean Sweep®

OCS® is a product stewardship program of the American Chemistry Council’s Plastics Division and Plastics Industry Association with the goal of achieving zero pellet and flake loss to the environment.

Alliance to End Plastic Waste (AEPW)

Alliance To End Plastic Waste logo

The Alliance to End Plastic Waste is a consortium of more than 30 global companies across the plastics and consumer goods value chain — including manufacturers, retailers, converters and waste management firms — as well as leaders in government, intergovernmental organizations and civil society. Members have pledged $1.5 billion over five years to combat unchecked plastic waste in the environment, especially the oceans.

In their 2020 Progress Report, the AEPW showcases programs that are working to end plastic waste in the environment and provides detailed updates on how these projects are making a difference.

Materials Recovery for the Future (MRFF)

Materials Recovery For The Future logo

The American Chemistry Council’s Materials Recovery for the Future research program is developing new technologies to expand recycling. The organization’s goal is to use off-the-shelf technology to upgrade recycling facilities to sort plastic film. The pilot program will be the first of its kind to demonstrate the technical and economic feasibility of recycling household flexible plastic packaging from curbside residential singlestream recycling programs.

Registration Evaluation and Authorization of Chemicals (REACH)

Registration Evaluation and Authorization of Chemicals

The REACH Regulation (1907/2006/EC) requires that EU-based chemical manufacturers and importers register their substances with the new European Chemical Agency (ECHA) by deadlines established according to the volume and hazardous classification of the substances. Chevron Phillips Chemical supports REACH Regulation, and we register all substances imported and manufactured in the EU.
