Environmentally Responsible Solutions

We believe environmentally responsible products make a difference in people’s lives all over the world.

We make products that contribute to cleaner air and purer drinking water. Our products serve as a replacement for harmful phosphates in consumer cleaning products and we make an ingredient that displaces environmentally harmful materials in fuel-efficient “green” tires. We do this to provide for a safer, cleaner world.

Meeting the Challenge of Social Responsibility

Today, we meet the challenge of social responsibility through our commitment to our Health, Safety, and Environment (HSE) Perfect Day process, effective implementation of our HSE Mission and Guiding Principles, Responsible Care®, and similar global industry processes. We continuously strive to be better stewards of our environment with each exciting new product innovation within our organization.

With all that we do at PQ, we are actively working to improve the health and safety of our workforce, vendors, customers, and neighboring communities, now and for the future.

Our Commitment to Environmental Stewardship

As our history shows, we have a long-standing commitment to creating products that are considered safer for the environment as well as people. We are dedicated to the efficient use of resources while striving to minimize the potential negative impacts of our operations.

PQ’s environmental stewards collaborate to reduce energy consumption and improve waste management practices, sharing best practices across the organization. Our HSE&S professionals worldwide are empowered to drive improvements in partnership with the wider organization through focused initiatives that meet the local needs of sites, communities, customers, and other stakeholders.

Building a Plan around the UN SDGs

We are aligned behind the UN Global Compact’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) through our:

  • Products
  • Manufacturing discipline
  • Dedication to health, safety, and the environment
  • Concern for business ethics and our communities

We continue to evaluate our business and establish goals against the UN SDGs which most align with our organization.

Municipal Water Treatment Solutions

As part of our alignment with the UN Sustainable Development Goals, we contribute to enhancing water supplies around the world. Our sodium silicates and zeolites help make municipal water safer by aiding in the removal of lead from potable drinking water and reducing the release of lead from lead-based pipelines.

We are driven to produce products that protect our water supplies for generations to come. In the end, it’s not just about what’s good for today, but about the future of our communities and the environment.


“Through our Business Transformation efforts, we are driving wastewater and in-process waste reduction, furnace efficiency, and footprint optimization, all of which have a major impact on our carbon footprint and sustainability goals.”

-Al Beninati, President, Performance Chemicals
