From employment opportunities to local non-profit partnerships that reflect Koppers values, our commitment to the communities we serve is as important as the products and services we provide.
Koppers is committed to engaging with and supporting the communities where we live and work. Our employees drive these efforts by helping to identify meaningful causes that align with our company’s values. And as a major employer and key contributor to the economy in many of our operating areas, we set out to make a positive impact with each day.
We believe it’s a critical component of our social license to operate and our facilities regularly partner with local nonprofit organizations that align with our values. And because there's no one way to make a difference, our past efforts have included everything from planting trees and cleaning rivers to mentoring children and repairing homes.
Many of our facilities have a Community Advisory Panel (CAP), which serves as the first point of contact for community members to meet with facility managers and other Koppers representatives.
A unique and diverse reflection of the communities we serve, CAPs consist of local community members representing an accurate cross-section of local interests. This proactive and transparent engagement in the places we work helps build strong partnerships that support the growth and development of our local communities and Koppers.
