Responsible Care® Management System

Message from the President & CEO

On September 8, 2018, I signed our pledge to operate our business according to the Guiding Principles of Responsible Care® and was immediately struck by lightning. Thankfully, I say this figuratively, yet I use this striking phrase as recognition that my leadership perspective was permanently altered.

My teammates and I pledge to lead WTS in ethical ways that increasingly benefit society, the economy and the environment. This is our just cause. We will never arrive, yet we are amazed by this journey. Responsible Care® lives in our culture, frames our decisions, and is our catalyst for continual improvement.

At WTS, we embrace our Commitment to Health, Safety and Security. To quote our WTS Responsible Care® Policy Statement

To our esteemed Stakeholders: Employees, Customers, Neighbors, Regulators, Emergency Responders and yes even to our Competitors: Thank You! 

To prospective Stakeholders our message is a call to Join Us. We welcome the opportunity to collaborate with you to increasingly benefit society, the economy and the environment. If you share our Commitment to Sustainability, reach me here on LinkedIn. Together we can live beyond quarters and make decisions for generations. I look forward to having a conversation with you.
