Our Environmental Policy

For 50 years we have remained committed to protecting the environment.  We have maintained the highest standards at our facilities, in both our infrastructure and the daily operation of our business.  Cato employs educated and trained people whose main function is to ensure that our facilities remain in compliance with all laws, regulations, and practices related to environmental matters.

We are considered one of the leaders in our industry as it relates to environmental compliance.  Voluntary participation in industry-related activities - such as government-sponsored educational programs - is standard practice at Cato.

We believe in providing appropriate training for all of our employees that handle our products.  Our belief is that this enhances our ability to limit exposure to accidental releases and provides understanding as to the importance of environmental stewardship.  We remain committed to our environment.


We Believe…

We believe in the responsibility of all employees to recognize that the special nature of the products we handle in our business operations creates a unique stewardship for our environment.

We believe in ensuring that all responsible and prudent steps are taken to protect the environment we live and work in.  We take every necessary step to prevent petroleum releases from our equipment and the equipment of our clients.

We believe that we will meet both the letter and the spirit of environmental regulations.  We work to maintain a solid dialogue with regulatory authorities in order to bring about prudent regulations and protections.

We believe in providing appropriate training and protection measures to limit exposure to accidental releases and other emergencies.

We believe in actively supporting local environmental programs on the use and conservation of our natural resources.
