Committed to the Highest Standards
As a member company of the American Chemistry Council’s Responsible Care® program, Shepherd is committed to the highest standards in protecting the health and safety of others and the environment. We are proud to be among the chemical industry’s best companies in the world- class Responsible Care® initiative dedicated to continuously improving environmental, health, safety and security performance for facilities, processes and products throughout the entire operating system.
Responsibility means accountability. We report regularly and transparently to international, federal, state and local agencies, striving for 100% compliance to the Responsible Care® Guiding Principles at all times. Preventing pollution, minimizing waste, conserving energy and other natural resources are all key goals throughout our product development, manufacturing, storage, usage and safe disposal. We actively engage in leading education, research and implementation of best practices to ensure and promote the wellbeing of our employees, communities and environment.
Rob Paxton, our Head of Operational Risk serves as an ACC Responsible Care® Committee Member. He has, along with the rest of Shepherd’s EH&S team, molded Shepherd’ Environmental Health and Safety policy to reflect the principles and high standards of the American Chemical Council’s Responsible Care® program.
