The International Council of Chemical Associations (ICCA) has created the Responsible Care programme – a global voluntary initiative for the chemical industry. Responsible Care is a unique ethic for the safe and environmentally sound management of chemicals; member companies are committed to support a continuing effort to improve the industry's responsible management of chemicals.
As a participating company, we have signed the Responsible Care Guiding Principles as a symbol of our commitment to continuous health, safety and environmental performance improvement.
Members of the European Association for Chemical Distributors are committed to the nine Guiding Principles:
Adopt global Responsible Care core principles
Implement fundamental features of national Responsible Care programmes
Commit to advancing sustainable development
Continously improve and report performance
Enhance the management of chemical products worldwide - product stewardship
Champion and facilitate the extension of Responsible Care along the chemical industry's value chain
Actively support national and global Responsible Care governance processes
Address stakeholder expectations about chemical industry activities and products
Provide appropriate resources to effectively implement Responsible Care
