Responsible Care

Responsible Care is the chemical industry’s initiative to improve health, environmental performance, enhance security, and to communicate with stakeholders. Through the sharing of information and a system of checklists, performance indicators and verification procedures, Responsible Care enables the industry to demonstrate how it’s environmental, health, safety and security performance has improved over the years, and to develop policies for further improvement.
