More than any environmental permit or government-granted sanction, the people of the community grant us our license to operate every day; they remain convinced that our operation is an asset to the community and not a detriment. It is imperative to engage effectively with neighbors and impacted communities to manage social impacts arising from business activities.
Shell Geismar is well positioned to play a leading role in helping our customers and society meet the challenges of climate change and protecting the air quality of the communities in which Shell operates. Our ongoing projects will take a significant step forward in reducing greenhouse gasses and producing products that protect the environment and reduce waste. It is also a key step in transforming our U.S. Gulf Coast assets to manufacture the lower-carbon fuels and products that our customers and society demand.
A core value amongst all of us at Shell Geismar is a commitment to our community. We strive to give back to the place that many of our employees call home. Our site and employees are involved in a number of community outreach programs and activities and we are proud to volunteer and collaborate with local partners to ensure a bright future for our communities.
