As a component of membership, all ACC members implement Responsible Care®, the chemical industry’s world-class environmental, health, safety and security (EHS&S) performance initiative.

Responsible Care drives the chemical industry’s commitment to the health and safety of our employees, the communities in which we operate and the environment as a whole. For more than 35 years, Responsible Care has enabled ACC members to build a reputation for strong leadership, driving safety and sustainability performance, and developing and implementing solutions to challenges.

Benefits of Responsible Care

Responsible Care is a shared ethical and operational philosophy that provides a foundation for our industry’s advocacy and communications efforts. Participation in Responsible Care provides a range of benefits to ACC members, including:

  • Guidance to help companies gain improved efficiencies in facility operations;
  • Enabling transparency and providing a platform to publicly highlight participating companies’ performance achievements;
  • Access to workshops, trainings, advisors and other resources to help companies enhance EHS&S performance and safe operations;
  • Forums and networking opportunities to help members build relationships with stakeholders, suppliers and customers.

ACC looks forward to your engagement in Responsible Care as we work together to enhance chemical industry performance and sustainability.
