We strive each day to conduct our business in a safe, secure, injury-free, environmentally responsible and sustainable manner. We demonstrate our values by our actions, conducting our business in an ethical way by adhering to the following principles:

Our Journey to Zero

Our Journey to Zero, the company's Environmental, Health, Safety and Security (EHS&S) Strategy, gives us a clear blueprint for eliminating high potential/high consequence personnel and process safety events. CPChem is proud to be among the top companies in its industry for personal and process safety performance. Successful safety performance is earned by holding each other accountable, supporting one another and performing our work the right way, every time.

Our principles prioritize the protection of personnel over production. We ask all of our employees and contractors to take time and care to do the job right, and to always feel empowered to speak up about safety concerns.

As a part of the 2017 roll out of Our Journey to Zero, CPChem introduced a high consequence and high potential incident reporting program. Having extended our focus, we share lessons learned from high potential consequence incidents and install corrective actions to prevent their occurrence. Through programs like Our Journey to Zero, we have achieved top safety performance in our industry.
