Calgon Carbon Corporation Releases First Global Sustainability Report


Sustainable Water SolutionsWater – The global need for sustainable water solutions is core to Calgon Carbon’s mission, working with customers to improve their environmental impact on global water resources and further their efforts with regard to providing clean, safe drinking water and safely treating their wastewaters. The company is establishing a firm baseline of how much water it consumes in its own operations. Calgon Carbon’s water reduction initiatives focus on eliminating or reducing process water and evaluating and investing in recycling and reusing process water.

Reactivation is Recycling – Calgon Carbon realizes the direct benefits of recycling every day through its thermal reactivation process, which is a method of recycling. When activated carbon reaches adsorptive capacity, and customers opt to send the material for reactivation, their decisions prevent this carbon from being disposed as waste. Once reactivated, the activated carbon may be safely and cost effectively returned to facilities for continued use in applications. For customers, this provides an opportunity to further their sustainability efforts.

Enhancing the Workplace – The Company assessed various social aspects regarding labour and work practices, including Diversity and Equal Opportunity, Employment, and Occupational Health and Safety. After developing a baseline understanding of the impact regarding these aspects, the company is evaluating current programs, policies, and opportunities to ensure their continued effectiveness and determine what, if any, changes are necessary. The evaluation process serves as the foundation for setting long-term goals and objectives for enhancing the workplace.

Community Support – The Company is committed to creating and sustaining strong relationships with its communities. To that end, Calgon Carbon is currently restructuring its corporate outreach to better align community support and giving. Additional steps include formalizing and documenting the Company’s approach to external communications and assessing community concerns and needs.
