At NOVA Chemicals, we believe we can help shape a world where the products vital to our lives – our health and happiness – are even better tomorrow than they are today. Our work results in plastic products that take care of food, water and other goods vital to life. To enable these products, we must first take care of the people, places, materials and processes that make them possible. We take care with respect to our operations, communities, products and the environment. Taking Care is a way to think and a way to work. It’s our particular approach for putting Responsible Care into practice.

You can see these principles in action every day, whether we’re offering products that increase energy efficiency, or supporting organizations that enhance quality of life. Another critical part of our commitment is striving for continuous improvement in these three critical areas:

Hay in field and plant


This includes environmental stewardship and the management of natural resources.

Trash and recycling cans


We never forget that our products are intended to make people’s lives easier, safer and healthier.

Adding value to our communities by providing jobs, purchasing goods and services, and making other economic contributions.
