SPL Journey

From the CEO

 

Sustainability, environmental awareness and employee wellbeing are guiding principles at SPL. We also strive to have a positive impact on the industries we serve and the communities we operate in.

Our ESG journey will be both internal and external. Internally, we will focus on how we can make our workplaces greener and more efficient. For our clients, SPL will continue to offer best-in-class environmental testing and make sure our customers are compliant with regulations and contract terms. Going forward, we will expand our ESG capabilities in new locations across the US to better serve our customers. All of these goals, metrics and results will be tracked and published in a yearend report starting in 2021. This report will be critical to our employees, investors, customers and communities we call home.

ESG is aligned with who we are and what we stand for as a company. I look forward to SPL becoming a leader in this important effort.

Sincerely,

Jeff Hibbeler, President and Chief Executive Officer
