As a company that has been in operation for over 100 years, Innovation and Sustainability are at our core. We are committed to creatively identifying opportunities for our customers to reduce the environmental impact of their manufacturing processes. We accomplish this by developing and promoting environmentally friendly products and proactively addressing emerging risk advocacy and public perception concerns.

At the same time, Watson Standard takes pride in our commitment to being a good steward to our employees, customers, suppliers and the communities in which we operate. We demonstrate this commitment by setting our own sustainability goals and environmental initiatives, including:


We comply with all applicable national, state and local laws, regulations and orders.

Waste Reduction

The Company reduces the environmental impact of the manufacturing process through the use of innovative practices, cost-effective technologies and, where appropriate, environmental mitigation and enhancement.


Watson Standard provides all employees with substantial training, education and tools to support and comply with all sustainability and environmental initiatives.

Proactive Partnerships

Watson Standard works closely with both regulatory and advocacy organizations to reduce any impact it may have on the surrounding environment. Additionally, we choose to partner only with suppliers who support and add value to our sustainability initiatives.

Through our efforts in the areas of Research and Development, recycling and waste reduction programs, we have been able to reduce air emissions in all categories by over 30% over the last ten years. Watson Standard has also implemented active recycling and waste reduction programs that continue to reduce any impact on the environment and the communities where we manufacture our products.
