We Think and Do Sustainability

At Surfactants Ltd, our commitment to sustainability is embedded in everything we do, from the management and operations of our global manufacturing sites to our actions and interactions across our entire value chain. We make, design, use, transport, and dispose of our materials in a responsible manner, assessing the impacts and benefits at each step in the product life cycle. We monitor the latest research, examine advances in science and technology, and dialog with stakeholders on perceived and emerging issues.

Our employees see it as their personal responsibility to create and maintain a safe work environment for their safety and the safety of others. We embrace total worker health. We prevent injury and illness by combining occupational health and safety with the promotion of healthy habits. We provide programs to advance the physical, mental, and financial well-being of our employees.

We Live Safely and Protect People

We operate our manufacturing facilities with a strong focus on process safety, always striving for better performance. In addition, we manage our supply chains to minimize risk to our customers, employees, contractors, suppliers, distributors, end users, and plant-site communities— including risks associated with the transportation and storage of toxic materials. We define our product or process chemistries, including by-products and impurities, and conduct appropriate testing to assess hazards, exposures, and risks through our product life cycles.

We Involve and Listen to Stakeholders

We foster a corporate culture of collaboration, inclusion, and engagement, where we value the unique perspectives of all stakeholders. Through collaboration, we create, anticipate, evaluate, and meet or exceed the needs of our stakeholders and society and be active participants and problem solvers in a growing and ever-changing world. We build relationships grounded in trust. We believe strategic alliances and partnerships in the community and along our value chains play a significant role in achieving our commitments.

We Uphold Strong Standards, Policies, and Performance Expectations

We create policies and standards that guide our operations. We adjust our policies and standards as needed to meet global expectations of our performance. We expect that every employee complies with our environment, health, and safety policies. We expect the same from every stakeholder along our value chain, from raw material supply to end-of-life for our products.

We Execute Business Responsibly

We incorporate the Responsible Care® Commitment and promote the Responsible Care® Guiding Principles globally. We focus on continually improving our Responsible Care Management System,® which integrates care for the environment, health, safety, security, and product sustainability into our business planning, risk management, and operating practices. We deploy our resources, including R&D and capital, to meet this commitment as we grow our company and make our businesses more competitive.
