OUR COMMITMENT


To the Environment

Evonik is a member of the Dow Jones Sustainability Indices (DJSI) World and Europe.  As an affiliated company, JAYHAWK is entrusted with the preservation of southeastern Kansas, practicing spill prevention measures, material recycling, waste reduction, sustainability indicator tracking and continuous safety training programs for all team members.  


To our Stakeholders

JAYHAWK is Responsible CareĀ® certified, operating according to first principles to assure that our products and services can be used safely and with minimal risk to the environment.  This pledge follows our products as they leave our facility and are utilized throughout the globe.


To our Employees

  • The JAYHAWK site has surpassed 5 years with ZERO lost time accidents. This is a testament to the safety consciousness of our people.
  • We have contributed over $50,000 to local families after a catastrophic EF-5 rated tornado ripped through nearby Joplin, Missouri in 2011.  
  • Our employees continue to enjoy fishing in the nearby Spring River and hunting throughout Cherokee County. They know firsthand that JAYHAWK acts as a good steward to the region. Conversely, employees understand their responsibility to preserve the local environment. 
All of these instances reflect our culture and commitment to a workforce that, in turn, dedicates itself to our continued success. There is an inherent understanding that it is all of our responsibility to preserve the local environment while ensuring a secure work environment.
