A Legacy of Responsible Innovation

Gore’s respect for the environment is a natural outgrowth of our legacy of responsible innovation. Throughout our history, we’ve applied the principles of sound science to create products that improve the quality of life, including products that solve difficult environmental problems. As a company and as individuals, we are committed to achieving a positive economic impact while being environmentally responsible. We will use the best scientific understanding available to guide us in our actions.

At Gore, we have an ongoing commitment to meeting all applicable health, safety, and environmental regulations and standards. We carefully consider the effects of our products and operations on the environment, as well as on the health and well-being of people. We strive to be good stewards of air, water, and energy resources, and in our management of waste.

As an innovative company, we are often in the forefront of technological breakthroughs where we assume added responsibilities. We will draw upon our unique knowledge, and the knowledge of others, to advance the understanding of the interaction of our products and processes with the environment. In all of our efforts, we will take a holistic approach that considers both the short- and long-term implications of our decisions and the prosperity of future generations.
