AFPM released the 4th edition of the Sustainability Report. This report highlights the myriad of examples of the work of AFPM members to deliver on their commitment to sustainably provide the critical fuel and petrochemical products that growing global populations need to thrive.

AFPM’s four pillars of sustainability are: Environmental Stewardship, Health and Safety, Thriving People and Communities and Driving Progress.

Environmental Stewardship

We are committed and responsible stewards of the environment. We are doing more with less — reducing emissions, conserving energy, using water efficiently, preserving land and reducing waste to protect the climate, air, water and land around us today and for generations to come. 

Health and Safety

We foster a strong culture of safety throughout our industries and our communities, building on the progress that has led our industries to be amongst the safest of hundreds of industries within the manufacturing sector.

Thriving People and Communities

We help people and communities thrive by providing well-paying jobs for people of all backgrounds, building more inclusive and diversified workforces and communities, preparing the future workforce for jobs in our industries and giving back to our communities through philanthropy and volunteerism.

Driving Progress

We are addressing society’s biggest challenges — including building a lower-carbon future and advancing a more circular economy for plastics — and pushing past the status quo by driving innovation that will make life better, safer and more productive.

With each edition of the Sustainability Report, AFPM highlights technologies and challenges that are top of mind for industry, policymakers, consumers and other stakeholders invested in creating a more sustainable future. Among many examples of progress the industry is making, this 4th edition highlights technological advancements in safety and emission reductions, improvements in data quality to track lifecycle greenhouse gas emissions, enhanced emphasis on workforce wellbeing and supporting diversity not only in the workforce but throughout the supply chain.
