Commitment to Sustainability
Improving lives through responsible operations
The world requires energy, and ChampionX is dedicated to supporting a lower-carbon future. We continuously improve our business practices and align operations to responsibly deliver solutions designed to reinforce our customers’ commitments to sustainability. From risk management to performance optimization, we collaborate with operators to minimize our impact on the environment.
Greenhouse gas reduction
We use the power of science, insights, and experience to design and deliver technology with impact. As stewards of our environment, our goal is to minimize emissions and enhance the operational effectiveness of our customers and ourselves. We are dedicated to continuous progress and improvements – ChampionX projects actively underway include lighting and machine efficiency upgrades, manufacturing process optimization, heating recovery and more.
ChampionX also contributes to the creation of a more sustainable energy infrastructure by applying advanced information and communications technologies to oil and gas production and transportation and greenhouse gas monitoring. These advancements help customers identify issues before they become problems and reduce worksite traffic and its related impacts.
Minimizing waste, conserving operational resources
Our waste reduction efforts focus on diverting waste, conserving operational resources, and helping the communities we serve. All ChampionX manufacturing and distribution sites must manage waste responsibly. Additionally, we actively seek opportunities to recycle operational materials where possible and within acceptable practice. We partner with vendors to implement recycling programs that allow us to collectively reduce our environmental impact.
Shrinking our footprint
ChampionX aims to foster a healthy environment for our employees and the communities in which we operate. We continuously monitor our energy consumption at facilities across the globe, looking for creative solutions to reduce our impact on the environment. From Ultra-high-efficiency HVAC systems to offsets that help to preserve native wetlands, ChampionX is actively seeking ways to reduce our own footprint.
