Our Values in Action

July 31, 2023

Blue Tide Environmental (BTE) has already made great strides to transform the re-refining industry by creating a sustainable, circular economic model for used oil. But our efforts haven’t stopped there. As an organization committed to delivering high-quality products and outstanding customer service, it is crucial for BTE to have a strong set of core values. To me, they are more than words on paper; they are calls to action and words for our organization to live by. These values include: 

Health, Safety & Environmental (HS&E)




Operational Excellence

Empowerment & Ownership


The Importance of Core Values

Our core values serve as guiding principles that shape our company’s culture, decision-making process, and overall behavior. They also provide a framework for employees to align their actions with our company’s mission and goals.

Having a strong set of core values helps create a positive work environment, fosters trust and collaboration among employees, and enhances BTE’s reputation. It also ensures that everyone is working towards a common purpose while upholding high ethical standards.

Added Benefits 

For our customers, BTE’s core values mean significant benefits. They help ensure that our products are produced in an environmentally responsible manner. They allow our customers to trust there to be continuity of the quality, amount and origin of our products. Our values empower and encourage our employees to take ownership of their work and provide exceptional service, resulting in high-quality products that meet customer expectations while driving costs down. Lastly, adherence to our core values means customers are treated with dignity and fairness throughout their interactions with BTE.

A Reflection of Who We Are

BTE’s core values not only shape our company’s internal culture, but are also a reflection of who we are as an organization. They matter in ways that are not always apparent on the surface, but will be noticed nonetheless by every person or entity we do business with. As the CEO, I have made it my mission to ensure that BTE lives these values every day.
