Sustainability

Making the world safer, cleaner, and better.

As a company, we care deeply about the world we pass on to future generations. That’s why we’re committed to using resources responsibly and sustainably – and creating products that make a real difference in the real world, while minimizing environmental impact.

Our automotive carbon products capture the equivalent of 3.7 million gallons of gasoline each day, making the air we breathe cleaner. The roads upon which we all drive are smoother and more durable thanks to our innovative asphalt additives. We produce dispersants for crop protection – doing our part to ensure the availability of healthy food around the world.

Responsible Care®

As a long-standing member of the American Chemistry Council (ACC), we believe in and subscribe to the Guiding Principles of the American Chemistry Council's Responsible Care® program — a global chemical industry performance initiative implemented in the United States through the ACC.

Responsible Care is now practiced in 52 countries worldwide, and its leading trade association manages each country’s program. Globally, Responsible Care is managed by the International Council of Chemical Associations and governed by the Responsible Care Global Charter, which sets a global vision for the Responsible Care program.

Through the program, we work to continuously improve our health, safety and environmental performance, while providing communications to our stakeholders about our products and processes. Supporting Responsible Care helps our industry operate safely, profitably and with due care for future generations.
