IN FOCUS: ICCA and COP-20
Greater use of energy-efficient technologies, products needed.
National Chinese chemical industry group joins Responsible Care® Leadership Group as full member
Principles for an efficient energy and feedstock policy
Welcome note from ICCA President Mark Rohr
ICCA, worldwide voice of the global chemical industry, works to ensure industry is widely valued and supported for its economic, social and environmental contributions to society.
Responsible Care is the chemical industry’s unique “ethic”, enabling the global chemical industry to continuously improve its health, safety and environmental performance.
Given that chemical products and technologies are used in a wide array of energy-saving and renewable energy applications, the chemical industry offers significant potential to help society achieve greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions reductions.
The major benefit of ICCA’s High Production Volume Chemicals program is that it delivers globally-harmonized, internationally-agreed data sets and initial hazard assessments that are recognized under national and regional programs.
The global goals of the chemical industry’s Long-range Research Initiative are to increase the knowledge of the potential impacts that chemicals may have on the health of humans, wildlife and the environment.
I look forward to capitalizing on the opportunities for global chemical manufacturers to fully raise the curtain on the role chemistry can play in tackling the world’s biggest challenges.
Mark C. Rohr, President, ICCA
