减少我们的影响

 

减少我们的影响作为 Responsible Care 的创始会员,Stepan 致力于以安全和可持续的方式运营,并一如既往地减少我们对环境的影响。公司努力通过环保的方式生产化学品,尽量减少从环境中取用材料并尽量减少向环境中排放废物,同时力求减少经营过程中使用的能源量。Stepan 将与客户及供货伙伴紧密合作,以恪守并促进我们对可持续性的一如既往的承诺。

为了有效减少我们的全球影响,公司将测量并跟踪:

  • 我们的工艺和产品的耗水量
  • 温室气体排放量
  • 能源消耗

我们对成功并持续减少影响的承诺

在这一方面,Stepan 可持续性计划的最初重点是提高能效、降低用水量和回收用水、消除浪费。

公司的伊利诺伊州仓库的设计利用了工业建筑节能系统,包括屋顶保温(含 Stepan 多元醇和居住者敏感照明以及温度控制)

执行了创新计划,加入了冷凝水回收和洗涤水再利用所必需的系统和控制。在多个地方,包括工艺控制策略变更和加工设备改进在内的减废计划,使得自 2005 年起,Stepan 的北美工艺废液降低了 24%。

2010 年,有超过 $7 百万被投入到节能项目中,包括我们给伊利诺伊州埃尔伍德的邻苯二甲酸酐生产设备安装了现代化、高效率的蒸汽锅炉并升级了大型工艺风机。这些努力汇集在一起,会让每年使用的能源降低量超过 14 百万千瓦。

In 2013, Stepan achieved its goal to reduce our waste to below 4.1 pounds per 1,000 pounds produced.长期来看,我们会进一步降低废物排放,实现每 1,000 磅产品排放 3.0 磅废物的长期目标。Stepan 正在研究水的再利用和节能技术,这会帮助我们节省井水的使用量。

Our Commitment to Sustainable Palm Oil and Palm Kernel Oil Production

Stepan Company has been a member of the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO) since 2011, and fully supports the mission of the RSPO to make sustainable palm oil and palm oil derivatives the industry standard.We make customer needs our primary interest and are, therefore, responsive to changes in markets with regard to sustainable palm oil and derivatives.In response to customer inquiries related to responsible sourcing of palm and palm kernel oil (PO/PKO), Stepan has set targets for certification of our remaining sites.We expect to have all sites that handle PO/PKO or derivatives certified by 2016 and target 2020 for using 100% certified palm kernel oil and derivatives.These commitments are dependent upon our suppliers’ ability to provide the volumes we need and upon our customers’ willingness to invest in the associated costs for sustainable supply chains.

Stepan Europe now offers two products certified as sustainable by the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO).Stepan sites in Wesseling, Germany and Stalybridge, United Kingdom received mass-balance certification in June 2014 and began offering STEOL® CS-270 CIT/MB (Wesseling) and STEOL® CS-270/MB (Stalybridge) in the third quarter of 2014.Stepan’s RSPO-certified product offerings will increase over the next two years and interested customers may contact Stepan Europe Technical Service at tech.service@stepaneurope.com to learn more about these product offerings.
