Pursing What It Takes To Be An Industry Leader
We have, and always will, pursue our role as an industry leader with a sense of duty to our employees, customers, the public, and the planet through sustainable, innovative products that promote positive societal and environmental outcomes.
To never stop pursuing better outcomes for our employees, customers, the public, and the planet, through innovative and responsible product development and stewardship.
As a corporate citizen, we understand that we have a profound responsibility to integrate sustainability into our business practices to best serve our employees, our customers, and the global community.
Sustainability at Diversified CPC
Community and global impact are embedded in our mission statement. Our vision has, and will always be, based on the continuous pursuit of innovation and stewardship. Purity and empowerment are pillars of our connected culture, and sustainability and equitable inclusion have always been inherently ingrained in our values and integrated into our business operations. At Diversified CPC, sustainability is not a trend, it is a business strategy.
Sustainability: Where Business
Excellence Meets World-Class
At Diversified CPC, we believe that environmental sustainability is integral to good business practices and to the production of world-class products. We also recognize that climate change is not just an environmental concern but has economic and social implications globally. Our entire business has been built on the premise of being environmentally responsible. As such, every product we make is high in purity, chemically stable, and environmentally conscious.
We are devoted to championing the pinnacle of environmental stewardship, which stands as the cornerstone of our forward-thinking sustainable values.
We encourage utilization of life cycle analysis to minimize the environmental impact of our services and products across the entire life cycle. Innovative developments in products and services that offer environmental and social benefits are encouraged. When recycling is not an option, solid waste generated from operations and industrial processes must be monitored, controlled, and treated as required prior to disposal in an environmentally responsible manner.
The U.S. is experiencing an unprecedented demand for clean and reliable liquid petroleum gas (LPG) products. Diversified CPC implements a reasonable, legally compliant, and comprehensive Air Quality Program, and we expect the same from our external business partners. Emissions of carbon should be monitored and minimized. Prior to discharge, emissions of volatile organic chemicals, corrosives, particulates, ozone depleting chemicals, and combustion byproducts generated from operations should be characterized, monitored, minimized, controlled, and treated as required.
We aim to serve as a responsible steward of the environment. We recognize that the assets we operate and the products we deliver can affect people and the environment. As a global leader in the design, production, and distribution of the highest quality hydrocarbon products, we have the challenging task of balancing customer demand and existing technology constraints with concerns about climate change. By increasing the efficiency of our operations, leveraging our engineering expertise, and implementing emissions reduction technologies, Diversified CPC is actively working to minimize our operational Scope 1 and Scope 2 greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.
To the extent possible, and with ongoing improvement, we will continue to implement conservation and resource utilization reduction programs to conserve resources, biodiversity, and ecosystems. As part of our commitment to protecting the communities where we work, we perform routine site inspections and monitor water usage. We also perform stormwater inspections to verify that our drains are clear from chemicals and other debris that could contaminate our lands and waterways.
Upholding Ethical Standards: Where Integrity Meets Business Excellence
Diversified CPC aspires to the highest standards of ethical and sustainable conduct in business practices and in deploying training and implementation programs to assure that all employees and stakeholders understand and adhere to these standards. All forms of corruption, extortion, and embezzlement are unacceptable. Our core values drive the company’s ethics and compliance, which focus on employees, customers, sustainability, and shareholders.
We are unwavering in upholding the strictest standards of corporate governance, anchoring our commitment to future-proof, principled business leadership.
Diversified CPC’s Code of Conduct sets the ethical conduct expectations for officers, directors, and employees at all levels. The highest standards of integrity shall be upheld in all business interactions. All forms of corruption, extortion, and embezzlement are unacceptable. Compliance with these standards is further supported by our core values.
At Diversified CPC, we believe that by auditing our safety and quality systems, implementing corrective actions to correct audit findings, and improving the development of innovative technologies, we will meet or exceed all environmental, safety, and other regulatory requirements.
The utilization of life cycle analysis is always encouraged to minimize our environmental impact. This analysis considers a variety of factors such as the use of recycled material, energy consumption during service delivery, manufacturing and use, material identification, disassembly, and choice of material.

The Future is Pure
We are pleased to share our first Sustainability Report, which showcases our accomplishments and ongoing efforts, and establishes a baseline for continuous improvement. Our next step is to identify and address our opportunities to further influence sustainability innovation across our business, our supply chains, and our stakeholders. What lies ahead is Pure Opportunity.
