Integrating Environmental Sustainability: Where Business Excellence Meets World-Class Products
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.
Putting People at the Forefront: Where Business Relationships Foster Global Connections
At Diversified CPC, we prioritize individuals—our esteemed employees, valued customers, trusted suppliers, and global neighbors alike. Our dedication to placing people at the heart of our operations stems from a deep-seated belief in building and nurturing meaningful relationships. Committed to an ongoing journey of enhancement, we continually refine our steps to bolster our pledge to social responsibility, ensuring every stakeholder feels seen, supported, and valued.
We are steadfast in our dedication to social responsibility, making it the heart of our forward-facing community-centered values.
Diversified CPC is committed to fostering, cultivating, and preserving a culture of diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI). To fulfill this commitment, we strive to cultivate an inclusive workplace and we equip managers and employees with tools to create equitable growth opportunities. We provide internal training and have integrated DEI strategies for vendor selection and hiring practices.
Community involvement is critical to improving social and economic development, and we encourage all Diversified CPC stakeholders to be engaged, especially in the communities where we work. We believe that our communities are equally as important as our customers and employees, and we are committed to supporting local charities and organizations.
At Diversified CPC, safety is a critical component of everyday business operations. A series of policies, procedures, and programs provide a framework for a workplace where employees share personal responsibility for maintaining a safe work environment. Our safety policy requires everyone to be responsible and accountable for recognizing and correcting risky behavior or unsafe conditions. This policy also establishes an ACHIEVE ZERO culture, an internal metric with a goal of eliminating injury and illness at our locations.
We champion global human rights, guided by fundamental principles such as those in the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the International Labor Organization (ILO) Core Conventions. Our support for these principles is reflected in our policies and actions towards our employees, suppliers, clients, and the countries where we do business.
Diversified CPC strongly believes that our success is directly related to our outstanding employees. As reflected in our core values, our employees are the foundation of our company. As we are committed to the success and development of all team members, we provide extensive training programs and a variety of options for career growth and professional development. Employee surveys, goal setting, and training targets, and internal audits are conducted annually to provide a positive employee experience.
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.
