Calgon Carbon Releases 2015 Global Sustainability Report
PITTSBURGH, PA – 08/10/2016
Calgon Carbon Corporation (NYSE:CCC) released its third Sustainability Report highlighting the environmental stewardship and social responsibility performance and initiatives the company advanced in 2015.
The 2015 Sustainability Report provides an update to the company’s sustainability program and progress with respect to the key focus areas: Environmental Stewardship, Enhancing our Workplace, Community Support and Product Stewardship. The report is now available at sustainability.calgoncarbon.com.
One of 2015’s highlights was the relocation of Calgon Carbon’s corporate headquarters to Moon Township, PA, which reflects the Company’s dedication to sustainability at the highest level.
Sustainability benefits of the new HQ facility:
- Expected to be LEED certified, featuring solar energy, a living vegetation roof and preferred parking for hybrid vehicles
- Provides access to local trails and a collaborative atmosphere to enhance the workplace experience for employees
- Reduced the company’s physical footprint by 21,000 square feet
- Decreased energy demand by 27%
The report also places focus on the company’s efforts to achieve Responsible Care 14001®, a formalized environmental, health, safety and security management system established by the American Chemistry Council. “We see this initiative as a large part of the continued success of our operations and also complementary to our sustainability efforts,” said Abby Rubright, EHS Program Leader. “Implementing RC14001® in the U.S. is also the right step toward aligning objectives and targets across the organization, as several of our facilities have already implemented environmental management systems.”
According to Randy Dearth, Calgon Carbon’s Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer, the company has taken great steps in the last three years to ensure it is adequately managing and monitoring its environmental impact. Through a streamlined monitoring process, the Company was able to show improved energy efficiency and reductions in water usage and greenhouse gas emissions while increasing virgin and reactivated carbon production in 2015.
“We track our sustainability performance and enact programs and initiatives that foster ongoing improvement in our efforts to enhance the workplace, protect the environment, promote product stewardship and support our local communities. Moving forward, we will continue to place priority on these initiatives and reporting our progress.”
