The term "Responsible Care®" refers to the American Chemistry Council's (ACC) program to ensure that chemical products are manufactured and used safely. Participation in the Responsible Care Program has long been a condition of membership to the American Chemistry Council, the trade association for chemical manufacturers.
Fundamentally, Responsible Care is both an affirmation of ACC member firms' commitment to protect both individuals and the environment from any dangers associated with their operations and a promise to improve their efforts in this area. Formally committing Responsible Care® communicates our company’s efforts in these areas to the public.
