Newpark is committed to a set of core values that embody the corporate philosophy as the foundation of our company. These values shape everything we do, from how we develop and market our technologies to how we serve our customers, employees, and communities. These are the four tenets we live by:

INTEGRITY

Acting honestly, ethically, and responsibly in all aspects of our business.

Integrity is the foundation of who we are and what we stand for. It helps us build trust and respect among all of our business relationships. At Newpark, integrity is never to be sacrificed for the sake of results.

RESPECT

Dealing fairly and openly with employees, customers, suppliers and community.

When it comes to our workforce, we are committed to fostering a workplace in which our employees treat one another with dignity and respect. We will extend these same principles to our interactions with our customers, suppliers and the communities we impact.

EXCELLENCE

Delivering value through performance, innovation and service quality.

Our commitment is to demonstrate excellence in all spheres of our work and in our interactions with customers, shareholders, suppliers, colleagues, partners and communities.

ACCOUNTABILITY

Using good judgment and taking responsibility for our actions.

We believe that, to be successful in the long-term, we all must be accountable to each other, our customers, our company and our communities. Accountability really means owning our actions, and doing our part to ensure Newpark's success.

NEWPARK'S SUSTAINABILITY INITIATIVES

When it comes to energy extraction in the oil and gas industry, the need to meet increasing global demand in a world of diminishing resources is seemingly at odds with efforts to ensure ecologically friendly operations. 

As a forward-looking company, sustainability has never been a buzzword for Newpark. We view sustainability as a powerful tool to help our customers meet today’s demands without compromising what’s essential for tomorrow. We know that’s no easy task, so we continue to invest in value-added technology designed to provide innovative eco-solutions. At Newpark, we believe that our customers should not have to sacrifice performance to protect the environment.

At a time when our industry is being encouraged by governments and non-profit organizations to change its ways, Newpark is one step ahead.

And that’s just the beginning. We are committed to sustainable profitability—to us, practicing environmental responsibility is ensuring our business' sustainability.
