From the capitol to the courthouse, from the statehouse to the city council, the American Chemistry Council (ACC) serves as a partner and an ally to our members. We are the collective voice of the chemical manufacturing sector and its value chain.  Our mission is to advance the industry’s goals and objectives at global, national, state and local levels.

In 2019, we added eight new companies to our membership, continuing to diversify and expand throughout the entire chemical manufacturing value chain. In the same year, state legislatures introduced more than 585 bills requiring our engagement. ACC advanced effective solutions that helped deliver victories in key states, holding back extreme proposals. We also orchestrated a powerful response to mounting public concern about plastics, uniting industry stakeholders to confront 282 bills in 42 states.

“To me ACC has helped us see part of the bigger picture. We would not necessarily be exposed to everything else that's going on around the industry… And I think that's one of the things that ACC really helps us with is that because it is focused on the business, chemistry overall.”
==Mark Kramer, President and CEO, Anderson Development Company
