About Responsible Care®
Responsible Care® is the chemicals industry’s own unique, global initiative, a voluntary programme that helps it to raise its standards and win greater trust from the public. Responsible Care® envisages a profitable, sustainable chemical sector in South Africa that contributes to the quality of human life and to the economy through innovation and production, without harm to people, property or the environment.
Responsible Care® aims to ensure that South Africa’s chemical sector is recognised by all stakeholders as a responsible industry playing an important role in bringing a wide range of benefits to society, while remaining open, honest and credible in all its dealings. Under Responsible Care®, the worldwide chemical industry is committed to continuously improving all aspects of health, safety and environmental performance and to open communication about its activities and achievements.
