Annual Conference to be Held Virtually on Previously Scheduled Dates


WASHINGTON (March 22, 2020) – ACC released the following statement regarding the transition of the 2020 Responsible Care® & Sustainability Conference & Expo to a virtual format:

The American Chemistry Council takes the health and safety of its staff, members and the general public seriously. We have closely monitored the COVID-19 situation and are following the guidance of local, federal and international health authorities as we formulate our response to this rapidly evolving issue. 

ACC leadership has made the decision to transition the Responsible Care & Sustainability Conference and Exhibition, scheduled for May 4-6, 2020, at the Marriott Harbor Beach in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., to a virtual format on those same dates. Details on the virtual event will be available in the coming weeks.

These uncertain times have resulted in quite a few logistical items that need to be addressed. Those who have previously signed up to attend in-person will receive a follow up communication regarding registration refunds within the next few days. Hotel reservations will be automatically cancelled and returned to the original form of payment. All other questions can be sent to ACC Meeting Services or by calling (202) 249-6121.

As the chemical industry’s environmental, health, safety and security performance initiative, Responsible Care has helped ACC member and Responsible Care Partner companies significantly enhance their performance and improve the health and safety of their employees, the communities in which they operate and the environment as a whole for more than 30 years. Our commitment to continuous improvement goes beyond Responsible Care. ACC’s Sustainability Principles build off of Responsible Care to demonstrate our industry’s commitment to promote the safe use of chemicals, address the environmental impacts of our operations and products and advance innovative products and technologies that help enable sustainability solutions.

The virtual 2020 Responsible Care & Sustainability Conference and Expo will bring together these two foundational industry priorities – Responsible Care and Sustainability – to help manufacturers and the supply chain work together towards solving our world’s most pressing sustainability challenges.
