Operating With Integrity .........

Birth Mark

If you view the pages of our company history, you’ll note we highly share british values. The company was birthed from and built on strong values, something of which we are all very proud. Honesty and integrity are and always will be very important to us. That is why our company adheres to very strict governance practices and operates transparently in all engagements.

Critical Oversight

Responsibility for risk oversight begins with our Board of Directors. Several subcommittees are in place to assist and advise the full board about a variety of matters: financial and accounting, regulatory compliance, compensation practices and programs, governance issues, sustainability and much more. Our Board receives data security updates that include cybersecurity resilience information and emerging trends, as well as updates on company initiatives in this area.

Operational Excellence Management System

Achieving operational excellence requires a clear understanding of business goals, an environment of trust and the opportunity to grow and realize our own potential. Our Operational Excellence Management System (OEMS) provides a systemic approach to advancing performance by outlining requirements that will enable us to achieve our goals and ensure our long-term success.

Our OEMS is built on the foundation of globally recognized Health, Environment, Safety, Security, Product Quality (HESS&PQ) and sustainability industry standards RC14001® and ISO 9001® and best practices and lessons learned from our management systems journeys over the last several decades. Beginning in 2020, 100% of our company is in scope of our OEMS, which is third-party reviewed for alignment with RC14001®.


Our OEMS framework includes:

  • Seven focus areas, which align with our HESS&PQ and sustainability requirements and risks and guide development of our processes and programs.
  • The Plan-Do-Check-Act (PDCA) cycle, which is at the core of many management system, provides an iterative process to ensure continual improvement. Our elements are considered and applied to processes and programs to facilitate PDCA.
  • Our culture. Combining our processes and programs with our exceptional people, who are accountable to exhibit operational discipline and shared ownership, we can ensure we are doing what we say we are doing. We are all responsible for speaking up with ideas and concerns and continually improving our HESS&PQ and sustainability performance.

Standards and Compliance

We complement our OEMS with performance-based standards that set organizational expectations.  Corporate subject matter experts support the HESS&PQ Management Committee in maintaining company policies and establish and maintain corporate standards, which align with corporate policies. Standards are periodically reviewed and updated to reflect changes in regulatory requirements, include recommendations arising from audits and incident investigations, incorporate stakeholder feedback and continually improve performance.

Business units implement processes and programs to maintain regulatory compliance and conformance to company standards. Responsibility for HESS&PQ performance lies with each MPC facility manager and ultimately with the head of each business unit. HESS&PQ professionals are employed throughout our business units to provide guidance and support for HESS&PQ matters.
