ExxonMobil Chemical receives ACC's top award
Jun '12
ExxonMobil Chemical Company received the Responsible Care Company of the Year Award at the 2012 American Chemistry Council (ACC) annual meeting in Colorado Springs, Colo.

The award is ACC's top award for exemplary achievement in safety, health, environmental performance and communication with stakeholders. An independent panel selects the recipient based on performance, programs and projects sustained over time.

Responsible Care is the global chemical industry's premier program for achieving and sustaining operational excellence. ExxonMobil Chemical implements Responsible Care through ExxonMobil's Operations Integrity Management System (OIMS), which establishes company-wide expectations for addressing operational risks. Through OIMS, ExxonMobil monitors and improves its performance.

ExxonMobil Chemical Company President Steve Pryor said, “OIMS gives our people around the world a common approach to managing operational risks and progressing towards an incident-free workplace. The goal is to eliminate injuries and reduce environmental impact. We appreciate ACC's recognition of our performance through this award.”

Over the past 10 years, ExxonMobil Chemical has reduced the injury rate in its worldwide operations by 60 percent, while at the same time improving the sustainability of its operations and products. For example, ExxonMobil Chemical advances in polyethylene used to make heavy-duty shipping bags have reduced the thickness of the bags by 50 percent over the last 20 years, decreasing packaging weight, shipping costs, energy consumption, emissions and waste.

The ACC also recently recognized ExxonMobil Chemical with Responsible Care energy efficiency awards for 16 projects that are saving in excess of 3.3 trillion BTUs annually. These projects are yielding energy savings equal to the needs of about 40,000 U.S. households and reductions in carbon dioxide emissions of more than 200,000 tons per year.

ExxonMobil Chemical is one of the world's premier petrochemical companies with global manufacturing, technology, and marketing operations. ExxonMobil Chemical endorses the principle of sustainable development, including the need to balance economic growth, social development and environmental considerations.
