We do the right thing.
We continually go the extra mile to protect the land, the water, the air, and its living things, because we believe in leaving things better. We’re honest, transparent and committed to doing what’s best for our communities, employees, customers, and shareholder. We expect employees to think, be understanding, but also take personal accountability in their day-to-day interactions with other employees, vendors, regulators, customers and community members. We will always strive for continued excellence, not just the status-quo.
We empower people and communities.
We empower employees, people, and the communities where we live and operate. As neighbors, we give time, resources and financial support to the people and organizations that help our communities flourish. Those we interact with are treated with respect and compassion.
