SunCoke Energy, Inc., the largest independent producer of high-quality coke in the Americas, has published its third annual sustainability report.
SunCoke's 2021 sustainability report highlights the company's industry-leading practices prioritising worker safety and environmental impact. This commitment to employee health and safety was underscored in 2021 when its internal COVID-19 task force continued to implement guidance from federal, state, and local agencies, ensuring employees well-being.
SunCoke leads the industry with environmentally efficient and advanced technology, setting the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) Maximum Achievable Control Technology (MACT) standards with its heat-recovery coke-making technology that converts heat generated during the coking process into steam and/or electricity, which is then sold to customers or the grid.
“The dedication of our team is clearly visible through our safety record, operational excellence and record-setting 2021 financial results. Our commitment to environmental excellence has always positioned us for long-term success as demonstrated by strong environmental performance,” said Michael Rippey, CEO. “In 2022, we plan to build on our ongoing climate scenario analysis, evaluate GHG emission reduction targets, continue to integrate the recommendations of the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD), conduct a technical feasibility study for carbon capture and sequestration (CCS) technology and continue our strong focus on research and development.”
