Supporting United Nations
Sustainable Development Goals


At CPChem, we understand that everyone plays an important part in creating a better tomorrow. Learn more about how we support the 2030 United Nations (UN) Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) with our products and actions.

What Are the SDGs?

key Issues

The heart of the UN’s 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, adopted by all UN member states in 2015, are its 17 SDGs. The goals balance the three dimensions of sustainable development: economic, social and environmental

The UN describes its agenda as an urgent call for action, recognizing that ending poverty and other deprivations must go hand-in-hand with strategies that improve health and education, reduce inequality, spur economic growth, while also tackling climate change and working to preserve oceans and forests

As the UN notes, the agenda’s ambition is one of unprecedented scope and significance. Accepted by all Member countries, the goals were created in observation of “different national realities, capacities and levels of development and respecting national policies and priorities. These are universal goals and targets which involve the entire world, developed and developing countries alike.”

These goals aim to inspire global action to advance a more peaceful, prosperous and equitable world

Our Sustainable Development Actions

CPChem has identified 11 SDGs that connect strongly to our business. Through assessments of our strategies, products and projects, we believe the SDGs’ connection to our business allows us to advance these important goals while also helping to address potential areas of concern.

Quality Education

Providing equitable access to quality education helps in the development of our employees, creating a strong culture of safety and advancing DE&I. We are committed to providing our employees with the sustainability education needed to drive our strategy.

We invest in enrichment programs that build awareness and knowledge and help provide equitable access to Science, Technology, Engineering and Math training to prepare tomorrow’s workforce

Clean Water and Sanitation

We believe that access to clean water and sanitation is a human right, and the scarcity of potable water is a global issue. We promote water stewardship and use water responsibly at our sites around the world.

Our high-density polyethylene (HDPE) pipes are a major contributor to accessing clean drinking water. HDPE pipe systems significantly limit leaks, require minimal maintenance and boast longer service lives than competing materials for critical infrastructure we need every day.

Affordable and Clean Energy

We are working to advance renewable energy solutions, optimize energy consumption and minimize energy intensities

CPChem products can help save energy. Polyalphaolefins (PAOs) used in immersion cooling and lightweight HDPE found in many vehicles are just two examples of how our products are increasing efficiencies and contributing to a lower carbon future.

Decent Work and Economic Growth

Our tagline, Performance by design. Caring by choice. ™, speaks to how we prioritize and approach high standards for operational excellence, ethics and human rights, and DE&I. Acting on these concepts is critical for economic growth and enhancing the quality of life of our employees and communities.

We recognize the choices we make for our material and service providers must also reflect these standards, which are outlined in our Supplier Principles of Conduct (SPOC).

Industry, Innovation and Infrastructure

We champion research and ingenuity, advancing innovative ideas aimed at reducing our environmental footprint, optimizing efficiencies, promoting circularity and creating new opportunities for collaboration.

We work jointly with diverse organizations to address global issues and promote sustainable growth.

Responsible Consumption and Production

We are enhancing our business and developing more sustainable solutions that use resources responsibly and minimize impacts on people and our planet.

CPChem belongs to several industry associations and participates in many initiatives that address global issues like plastic waste while promoting more sustainable operations.

Climate Action

We are taking action for the climate by reducing our carbon intensity, investing in renewable energy and improving our resilience to climate risks.

As part of our action, we are targeting a 15% reduction in the carbon intensity of our operations by 2030 using a 2020 baseline.

Life Below Water

We support efforts to eliminate plastic waste on land and water. Mismanaged plastics can have negative impacts on the environment, which is why we are working to advance a circular economy and protect Life Below Water

Partnerships For The Goals

We collaborate with strategic stakeholders like community groups, NGOs, industry associations and more to accelerate sustainable change locally and abroad.
