Welcome to the new Koppers website.

People

Protecting What Matters and Preserving the Future is our purpose and the motivation underlying our sustainability strategy—it’s also the driving force uniting our employees, customers, and communities.

At Koppers, how you treat people matters.

In fact, it’s a cornerstone of our Zero Harm culture, which puts the care and protection of our employees, the communities we serve, and the environmental future we share first in all our actions and decisions. As sustainability leaders in our industry, we’re proud to have established a culture where our people feel empowered, engaged, included, and instrumental in the essential products and value-added services we offer.
At Koppers, we treat our people, business partners, and stakeholders with dignity, respect, and fairness. We believe we can collectively make the greatest impact by practicing compassion, empathy, and transparency at all levels.

Our Zero Harm Commitment

Crucial to our culture on every level, Zero Harm is a company-wide commitment to keeping the health and safety of our employees, communities, and environment at the center of every decision. Make no mistake, Zero Harm is a people-first mindset and the foundation of who we are and how we do business.

Inclusion & Diversity

The work we do and the products we provide cross all walks of life. Our operations span several continents—and we see it as our duty to reflect the world we serve, with opportunities for everyone regardless of race, gender, ethnicity, age, or orientation.

In the Community

At Koppers, we provide career opportunities within our communities and strive to balance the needs of our company with those of our stakeholders. We see our communities as both partners and places that are worth investing in—regularly collaborating with local, like-minded non-profits to make a positive difference where we live and operate.
