Responsible Care® is the chemical industry’s unique global initiative that drives continuous improvement in safety, health and environmental (SHE) performance. It is helping the chemical industry to contribute to sustainable development while allowing us to meet the world’s growing need for essential chemicals and the products those chemicals make possible. The Responsible Care® initiative is committed to open and transparent communication with all stakeholders.
The International Council of Chemical Associations (ICCA) is the worldwide voice of the chemical industry, representing manufacturers and producers all over the world. Through the participation of over 50 national chemical manufacturing associations – and through them, thousands of chemical sites around the world – Responsible Care® forms an essential part of ICCA’s contribution to the United Nations' Strategic Approach to International Chemicals Management (SAICM)
The network continues to expand, which helps to improve the way we share safety, health and environmental information as well as the way we employ increasingly rigorous system, checklists, performance indicators and verification procedures. In addition, Responsible Care® outreach spans a vast range of activities from cooperative, performance-based initiatives with government agencies to community projects such as development of wildlife habitats and tailored programs for schools.
Lucite International is committed to implementing Responsible Care® as broadly as possible and has the following priorities:
