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 2016, we added 15 new companies to our membership, continuing to diversify and expand throughout the entire chemical manufacturing value chain. In the same year, we also protected product markets by defeating or amending more than 130 flawed, hazard-based bills seeking to ban or restrict chemical or plastics products across 43 states.
