Connecting People. Our vision is to connect people, free from waste or pollution, enhancing environmental quality and health in our communities. Complying with environmental laws and regulations is a foundation to our operations; however, we aspire to higher standards and commit to continuous improvement of our environmental policies and practices. We will educate and inform our stakeholders and strive for innovation that will complement our business strategy. Our aspiration is to eliminate any negative environmental impact from our business activities, creating social value, environmental health and connection as our “footprint.”
