Quantix, a North American supply chain services company for the chemical industry, announced that its dry bulk and warehouse divisions have been accepted into Operation Clean Sweep's (OCS) new OCS blue programme.
OCS blue was created to recognise existing OCS members who excel within the original programme. For more than 25 years, OCS has helped plastics companies work toward achieving zero plastic resin loss.
"We're honoured to be one of the earliest supply chain services companies in the OCS blue programme, as it is a testament to our commitment to environmental best practices," said Alex Buck, President of 3PL Solutions and Head of Sustainability at Quantix. "Being OCS blue members will bring further accountability and transparency to our sustainability initiatives, especially as it pertains to pellet pollution. This is top-of-mind for the communities in which we operate and for our business, alike."
As part of OCS blue, Quantix has committed to additional training, reporting, inspections, and procedural enhancements focused on pellet loss prevention, containment, and clean-up. Quantix will also help inform new OCS literature surrounding its best management practices in this regard.
Quantix has been part of OCS for several years. In addition to OCS, the company is part of the Environmental Protection Agency's SmartWay Transport Partnership programme, which helps the freight transportation sector improve supply chain efficiency. A majority of Quantix locations are also Responsible Care Certified, the American Chemical Council's certification programme for businesses that demonstrate their commitment to the health and safety of their employees, the communities in which they operate, and the environment as a whole.
