As a member of the Chemistry Industry Association of Canada (CIAC), Arkema is committed to Responsible Care®. This program of initiatives, adopted by all CIAC member companies, seeks to protect the health and safety of employees, as well as the environment and the surrounding communities.
Based on three codes of good conduct, Responsible Care® ensures the safe management of chemical products throughout their manufacture, storage, handling and transportation. At Arkema, we view Responsible Care® as a part of our Total Quality Management Pledge.
Responsible Care® covers all aspects of our business, including environmental protection, resource conservation, occupational health and safety, process safety, research and development, transportation, product stewardship, purchasing, security and social responsibility. It requires engagement with plant-site neighbors, communities along transportation corridors, emergency responders, critics and advocates, as well as with governments at all levels, to advance laws and regulations in support of sustainability.
