Capco’s Environmental Policy
Capco’s environmental policies and practices will ensure all governmental, legal, and contractual requirements and obligations are met while also committing to improving the environment for our employees, community, and country, striving to use industry Best Management Practices, improving our environmental impact, and aiding Capco’s business performance.
The personal goal of each member of the Capco Team should be to constantly evaluate how their actions affect the environment and work toward reducing their individual impact by raising concerns and providing solutions, while Management of Capco will ensure that this policy is understood, implemented, and maintained.
Capco’s manufacturing facilities are surrounded by the Colorado National Monument, Colorado River, scenic mesas, cliffs, and canyons of the Colorado Plateau. Our employees enjoy life amidst a wide variety of recreational opportunities, and our surrounding environment is a continuous reminder of the importance of minimizing our environmental impact. Capco’s Environmental Excellence Committee serves to protect our local community, and planet Earth.
Environmental Leadership Program
Capco is proud to be a part of the Colorado Dept. of Public Health and the Environment’s Environmental Leadership Program as a Gold Leader. Capco has been part of the CO ELP first as a Silver Partner, from 2017-2021, but due to our efforts in reducing stormwater pollution and hazardous waste generation, Capco was awarded the status of Gold Leader in 2021. While production rates continued to increase, our waste generation decreased.
EPA WasteWise Program
Capco joined the EPA’s WasteWise Program in 2020 to join efforts in reducing waste sent to landfills. Through the team efforts of Capco, waste diversion efforts from the facility increased nearly 67%.
