Sustainable Practices: 

In 2013 Quaker established a global Sustainability program. A dedicated Global Director of Sustainability position was created and filled. Much of the work so far has revolved around establishing the baseline data in the numerous areas of sustainability. Current goals for 2014 include:

  1. Reduction of energy and water used in our manufacturing operations as well as reductions in the waste generated.
  2. A thorough review of the current raw materials used in our products with the end goal to reduce or replace those with either a negative impact on people or the environment.
  3. We have established Green Teams in all Quaker facilities around the world that will establish projects dealing with local activities such as recycling, community involvement.

All of these actions along with others currently being planned will insure Quaker will continue to be a strong, long term supplier to the Aluminum industry. For more information please contact Kyle Campbell - Global Director of Sustainability at 248-593-3361.
