Redução do nosso impacto


Reduzindo o nosso impactoStepan is a charter member of Responsible Care and we work continuously to operate in a safe, sustainable manner. From raw material sourcing and transport to operational impacts and product safety, we aim to manufacture chemicals in a way that minimizes waste and conserves energy and resources.

We are committed to the principles outlined in Responsible Care across our sites and we work to improve the efficiency and safety of all our operations.

In support of our goals, we measure and report on: 

  • O consumo de água nos nossos processos e produtos
  • As emissões de gases do efeito estufa
  • Energy Use
  • Waste Generation

Across our global operations, it is our goal to demonstrate practices and deliver products that offer the greatest benefit to consumers while minimizing our operational impact.

Our Commitment to Sustainable Palm Oil and Palm Kernel Oil Production

Stepan has been a member of the Roundtable for Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO) since 2011. We utilize derivatives of palm kernel oil in the production of some of our ingredients. Through our engagement with the RSPO, we support efforts to create a system of accountability and to establish and implement best practices for the production of sustainable and socially responsible palm material. To date, we have achieved RSPO supply chain certification for more than 80% of our relevant sites, including all of our U.S. and European sites that handle palm oil and palm kernel oil, our Ecatepec, Mexico, site and our sites in the Philippines and Brazil. We are certified under the mass balance supply chain model and can work with customers and distributors to offer the certified products. 

In addition to our engagement with RSPO, Stepan has developed a Third Party Code of Conduct and Responsible Sourcing Guidelines for Palm Material Suppliers, each of which take effect immediately. Within these documents we outline our expectations for ethical, responsible and sustainable practices from our third-party partners.
