Sustainability

How we do business matters.

We work in sensitive industries, producing essential products and services that support everyday life. We have an enormous responsibility and opportunity to plan, foster innovation, and progressively manage our impact.

Building a sustainable future is a pledge we intend to uphold.

In 2020, we committed to our 20-year vision for sustainability—a distinct set of goals to continuously improve our social, environmental and economic footprint. This vision acts as a guidepost to manage our impact through the next two decades with resource recovery at the forefront.

Managing Our Impact

We take the long view, continually evolving our business while remaining true to our founding values. We will drive growth with innovative products and services.

Our Progress So Far

Why Resource Recovery?

Because diversion isn’t always the best option. The ability to extract value at every stage of the product life cycle is necessary not only for the future viability of our industries, but also for our environment and the communities we operate in.
