Supporting the Community

Supporting the Local Friedeck School

Over the past several years we have provided volunteer and financial support to the Friedeck School as they construct a new outdoor recreational area for the community. Our volunteers were heavily involved in the construction and installation of several elements of the playground, including the climbing wall, a football field and a sitting area. Additionally, we partnered with the Cabot Corporation Foundation, Inc. to provide funding for the project.

Safety, Health & Environment (SH&E)

Schaffhausen SafetyThe safety of our employees, contractors, visitors and local community members is always our top priority. In June 2015, we were proud to receive Cabot's prestigious President's Club award for achieving more than five consecutive years of safe operation without a recordable injury.

We continuously strive for a safer working environment, relying on a local employee safety committee to help ensure that safety is top of mind every day and in everything we do. We are continually focused on our "Drive to Zero" initiative, which reflects our goal of achieving zero injuries at all of our facilities worldwide. We also celebrate and support Global Safety Day, an annual initiative in which we participate in various safety-related activities to share best practices and reinforce safety as our number one priority.
