In order to be able to talk about sustainability and how our business practices support the Sustainability movement, we must first take a moment to answer the question What is Sustainability? According to the EPA, “Sustainability is based on a simple principle: Everything that we need for our survival and well-being depends, either directly or indirectly, on our natural environment. To pursue sustainability is to create and maintain the conditions under which humans and nature can exist in productive harmony to support present and future generations.” (https://www.epa.gov/sustainability/learn-about-sustainability#what)
At Twin Rivers Technologies, Sustainability is not just a part of our work; it is a guiding influence for all we do. In 2017, one of our main efforts was to renew our mission, vision and core principles. To reinforce the importance of Sustainability, we needed to start with a vision and mission that aligned with that idea. In 2017, we announced that “Our vision is to be the preferred choice for Naturally Based Specialty Chemicals by consistently manufacturing and delivering high quality products through a sustainable and diversified supplied chain.”
In conjunction with our vision, Twin Rivers Technologies’ mission is to deliver superior value to our stakeholders by:
- Providing uncompromising customer satisfaction by continually meeting or exceeding expectations for quality and service
- Focusing on home and personal care, food and industrial markets in line with our competencies
- Fostering an engaged culture that empowers our employees to achieve goals and provide an exceptional customer experience
- Ensuring competitive returns and viable growth to our shareholders
Through these beliefs and our initiatives, Twin Rivers strives to be a responsible and sustainable member of the global business community.

Sustainability isn't just what we do, it's who we are. We are excited to be able to share with you our 2018 Sustainability successes in the upcoming months.
