Sustainability Performance

A Statement from our Chairman, President and CEO

“From my perspective, our engagement in sustainability comes naturally with our daily business and is fully reinforced through our strategies and values. Today, we meet the challenges of social responsibility through our commitment to the HSE Perfect Day, effective implementation of our Health, Safety, and Environment (HSE) guiding principles, and Responsible Care® and similar global industry programs.

We strongly believe that we will continue to improve our environmental footprint because of our beliefs and strong ethics—all of which shape the way we conduct our global business. In all that we do, we strive to protect the environment and encourage the well-being and health of all citizens.”

- Belgacem Chariag, Chairman, President and CEO

Our Environment, Social and Governance Issues Materiality Matrix

With increasing emphasis on corporate citizenship and environmental stewardship both through our employees and external partners, we continued our sustainability journey in 2019 by formalizing sustainability-related processes.

To ensure our efforts and disclosures meet the expectations of our shareholders, employees, customers, communities, and external stakeholders, we initiated our first materiality assessment in partnership with Berg and Associates.  This effort incorporates external and internal input as to crucial sustainability topics relevant to PQ Corporation.
