At Flint Hills Resources, sustainability and stewardship are part of our commitment to doing what is right. It means we help provide products people need and use every day, products that help make modern life possible and improve people’s lives. And we do this responsibly by prioritizing safety and environmental stewardship and contributing meaningfully to the communities we call home.
The products we produce, such as transportation fuels and the wide array of coproducts that come from refining petroleum, are foundational to the economy. It’s important that we innovate and continuously improve our products and how we make them. Learn more about Flint Hills Resources stewardship in action.
From our daily operations to the selection, design, and execution of projects, we constantly strive to use fewer resources, eliminate waste and minimize the emissions associated with the products we make. We also expect our sites to operate in full compliance with all environmental rules and regulations at all times. And we expect them to never cease improving their environmental performance.
Health and Safety
There is nothing more important than the health and safety of our employees, contractors, and the people who live or work near our facilities. This safety commitment encompasses everything from the smallest daily task to complex process controls. A strict adherence to safe work practices and the use of proper personal protective equipment is a base expectation at our operating sites. Technologies such as advanced automation, remote sensor monitoring, machine learning and virtual reality training simulators are also helping make our facilities safer.
Marketplace competition drives innovation and leads to new discoveries and new ways to improve people’s lives. We seek to improve every facet of our operations by incorporating new technologies that improve our performance. We expect our people to embrace transformation, constantly reimagine how our businesses can contribute to society, and continue producing products people value more than their alternatives, while using fewer resources and minimizing impacts to the environment.
