NOVA Chemicals believes that ‘business value’ and ‘value for people’ can – and must – be integrated for the good of our customers, our company, and the global community. Our commitment to Responsible Care®, sustainability, and our communities is unwavering and at the core of what we do, every day.
For more than two decades, we have adhered to Responsible Care standards and actively promoted them throughout the industry, leading the way in health, safety, sustainability and stewardship of our products. Launched in 1985, Responsible Care is the chemical industry's award-winning initiative that requires member chemical companies to go above and beyond regulatory requirements and voluntarily share relevant performance metrics with the public.
NOVA Chemicals is strongly committed to sustainability – for our business, but also by providing innovative products that help reduce waste and improve energy efficiency for our customers and society. We strive for continuous improvement in three critical areas:
- Environment – We believe that sound environmental stewardship and careful management of natural resoruces are fundamental to a sustainable business.
- Social – We develop and manufacture products that deliver value to our customers and make everyday life safer, healthier, and easier.
- Economic – We create economic value for our stakeholders, including providing jobs, purchasing goods and services, and paying taxes in our communities.
Both our mission and our Responsible Care commitment demand open communication and positive, long-term relationships with all stakeholders. We work hard to inform communities about facilities, operations, and products, to understand and respond to concerns and to seek input through community advisory panels, training programs, community forums, open houses and personal visits.
NOVA Chemicals also actively invests in the well-being of our communities, including supporting organizations that positively impact the quality of life where we work and live.
