The DuPont-Haverhill-SunCoke CAP was formed in Franklin Furnace, Ohio, in 2005 to nurture stronger relationships and open channels of communication between local businesses and community stakeholders, and lead projects and programs that better the community. The Haverhill CAP serves as a forum for two-way dialogue to address issues of mutual interest to the participating companies and the community, including the sharing of plant information. The CAP is comprised of residents, educators, community leaders and company employees, and is managed by an independent third-party facilitator.
In 2008, as part of a permit appeal settlement prior to beginning operations at our Granite City, IL, facility, SunCoke Energy and U.S. Steel established a number of new environmental benchmarks and collectively contributed $5 million to create a trust fund for local area projects that promote environmental conservancy.
In 2010, SunCoke’s Middletown Coke Company in Middletown, Ohio, formed a community advisory panel (CAP) of local residents, business owners and company employees. The Middletown CAP meets throughout the year and, like the Haverhill CAP, serves as a forum for open dialogue about issues of mutual interest to the facility and community stakeholders, including the operations of our Middletown cokemaking plant. The Middletown CAP is managed by an independent third-party facilitator.
