Achieving Business Objectives and Maintaining Fundamental Values
At Emerald Performance Materials, it is vitally important that the way we conduct our business activities and the manner in which we achieve our business objectives do not deviate from the principles of ethical conduct embodied in our fundamental values.
Our dealings with others inside and outside of Emerald Performance Materials are based upon mutual respect, open communications, and unquestioned integrity. Integrity as a basic way of dealing with others is a fundamental value to Emerald Performance Materials.

Beyond compliance with laws and regulations, we require honesty, cooperation, and openness in all of our professional relationships. Such behavior earns the trust and respect of our fellow employees, customers, suppliers, investors, and our neighbors within the communities where we live and work. Our goal is to do what we say we will do, to guard against over promising and under performing, and to quickly correct any shortcomings.
