Chemours’ Fayetteville Works manufacturing site has been recognized for its commitment to environmental leadership by the Wildlife Habitat Council (WHC). The site’s Wildlife Habitat Program achieved a Gold Conservation Certification, the highest achievable certification for its seven WHC projects on-site.

“We are thrilled to have employees with a passion for Wildlife Conservation,” said Christel Compton, Chemours Environmental Program Manager. “The Gold Certified designation is a tribute to our employees’ commitment to doing the right things to preserve our planet and the thriving wildlife that surrounds our site.”

Throughout 2022, the local team worked on seven projects within the designated 1,500 acres of wildlife habitat to support the recertification process. These projects are managed under the site’s overall WHC certification program, and each has a different focus area, including bluebirds (houses at Fayetteville plant pictured above), eastern wild turkey, white tail deer, a pollinator garden, and more.

In addition, employees at the site engaged the local community with the wildlife habitat projects during the year. In July, they invited their children to join them in planting a Butterfly Highway, part of a conservation initiative to restore native pollinator habitats across North Carolina. And, in November, a group of local students catalogued tree species alongside staff members.

Chemours maintains seven WHC certified sites across the United States. In 2023, four of these sites are being recertified, with three being designated as Gold Certifications and one being designated as Silver Certification. Together, the seven Chemours’ WHC-certified sites are engaged in 67 WHC projects.

WHC promotes and certifies habitat conservation and management on corporate lands through partnerships and education. WHC Certification programs take corporate sustainability goals and objectives and translate them into tangible and measurable on-the-ground actions. Through a focus on building collaboration for conservation with corporate employees, other conservation organizations, government agencies and community members, WHC programs focus on healthy ecosystems and connected communities. WHC-assisted wildlife habitat and conservation education programs are found in 48 states and 24 countries. www.wildlifehc.org
