Responsible Care Programs

Responsible Care is a chemical Industry standard established by the American Chemistry Council which can be implemented for many industries including oil and gas, manufacturing, and pharmaceuticals, for example. The program drives environmental, health, safety, and security (EHS&S) concerns, as well as the following:  

  • Planned changes and outsourced processes that are considered for each life cycle stage of products, service, procurement of products and services, including new or modified activities 
  • Establishment of appropriate controls
  • Accounting for raw materials, products, waste material, and transportation incidents, with a specific focus on environmental risks, impacts and mitigation
  • Information about potential significant environmental impacts associated with transportation, delivery, use, end of life treatment, and final disposal of products and services
