ICCA and UNEP Join to Promote Safe Management of Chemicals in Africa
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.
Through the Global Product Strategy (GPS) ICCA is committed to the safe management of chemicals during their entire life cycle. To promote transparency the GPS web based search portal offers free, public access to relevant chemical safety information for interested stakeholders.
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.
“Innovations in chemistry are critical to meeting the needs of a growing world and driving the innovations that make modern life possible. The global chemical industry is addressing urgent societal challenges and supporting communities and economies worldwide by enabling the technologies, products and processes that provide clean water, a healthy food supply, efficient energy sources and life-saving medical treatment to an ever-growing global population. ICCA will continue to lead the chemical industry’s sustainability journey, to strengthen safe chemicals management around the globe.”
ICCA President, Kurt Bock
