Holding Ourselves to High Standards
We are committed to creating a culture that empowers people to work safely, care for each other, and do the right thing.
Our Piedmont Promise is the foundation of our Safety, Environment, & Health policy – which is our pledge to operate our facilities safely and with responsible environmental stewardship. It serves as an expectation on which our employees, neighbors, stakeholders, and the community can rely.
We emphasize working the safe way, not the easy way, as we uphold our commitments.
