Calumet Corporate Responsibility

A Commitment to Protecting the Environment

Calumet is dedicated to being accountable for continuous improvement, sustainability, and social responsibility.

Calumet’s efforts to prioritize and protect the environment are focused on tracking and reducing energy consumption and air emissions, water management, and conservation as well as waste management.

As a result of Calumet’s investment and continuous improvement efforts in these four areas over the past several years, while overall production has remained steady, air emissions (greenhouse gases) and non-hazardous waste generation have decreased during the same time period.
