Acculube, a national leader in the distribution of brand name lubricants and manufacturing fluids, is committed to policies and procedures that benefit its region, the environment, and its many valued customers throughout the Midwest – and beyond.
With this in mind, Acculube’s Leadership Team has established a Sustainability Code, with focus on these areas:
Customers – Our commitment is to supply lubricants and chemical products that optimize performance and sustainability. We have become active partners with many customers, large and small, as they strive to meet goals for cost and waste reduction and move toward “zero waste” operation. Acculube has established several highly-effective programs, including Customized Fluid Management and an In-plant Survey to reduce “fluids TCO” (total cost of ownership) while improving environmental performance. We have also introduced a broad range of biodegradable and zinc-free products.
Community – every Acculube process, department and activity has, at its core, a commitment to achieve its mission with the lowest possible environmental impact. Everything we do – from the products we purchase, the delivery trucks we drive, how we use electricity and water – and the way we built our latest expansion – is guided by “green thinking” that considers all the options, and prioritizes those choices that minimize impact, and maximize recyclability. Our commitment to being good stewards of our community also means we give back to our region through meaningful support of local organizations.
Environment – Acculube field representatives and technicians work with hundreds of companies each year, throughout the Midwest – and often far beyond. We are committed to helping them reach their own sustainability goals, and helping them establish goals if none are yet in place. Equally important, we are committed to ensuring that our supply chain partners are working on their own benchmarks for sustainability performance. Showing the way – with innovative products that reduce waste, local sourcing that reduces fuel use, communications strategies that reduce paper use – and much more – is how we’ll reach our own sustainability goals.
