We make progress

Our Commitment

As America’s fuel refiners, petrochemical manufacturers and midstream companies, we play an irreplaceable role providing the products and energy that make modern life possible. At the same time, we drive innovation for a brighter, more sustainable future.

This website showcases our work to provide essential products and energy, to ensure safe operations, to help our communities, and to innovate new technologies for a cleaner, healthier, and more prosperous world. Read on to learn how we make progress.

New technologies can dramatically expand plastics recycling. “Advanced recycling” can reduce waste and make our world cleaner. Learn more about advanced recycling.

Heavy transport can have a lighter impact. We’re innovating new fuels that go the distance, with less emissions. Learn more about lower carbon intensity fuels.

Liquid fuels like diesel are the backbone of the American economy. From farming, to construction, to local delivery, they power the industries that support American jobs, the economy and our modern way of life. Learn how liquid fuels keep America moving.

Nothing is more important to our industries than safety. The people and companies in our industries work together to continually enhance safety for our employees and our communities.

We help our communities thrive by providing well-paying jobs for all types of people — and supporting the future workforce for jobs down the road. We also build more inclusive and diverse communities and give back through volunteerism and giving.
