Responsible Care® is a global initiative of the chemical industry under which thousands of companies commit to the safe, responsible, sustainable management of chemicals through their life cycles, and for their intended uses.
The initiative began in Canada in 1984 and is practiced today by 57 national and regional associations in 65 countries around the world. The global initiative is now run under the auspices of the International Council of Chemical Associations (ICCA). Our commitment to the global initiative can be found at Responsible Care® Commitment.
