Chemicals Management

The SAICM Journey: 20 Milestones to 2020 [INFOGRAPHIC]

The International Council of Chemical Associations (ICCA) has made real, tangible progress on the road to sound chemicals management.

That’s because ICCA is an association of innovators, visionaries, solutions providers and product stewardship pioneers. Above all, we are optimists. What others see as challenges, we see as opportunities to solve some of the world’s biggest problems.

Our shared optimism has driven us to reach new heights along the SAICM journey, guided by ICCA’s Global Product Strategy (GPS) and Responsible Care programs. While we’ve made progress, the journey continues.

By strengthening SAICM, we can accelerate and intensify the deployment of innovative products and technologies to address global challenges and enable a more sustainable future.

Our Unified Vision: The Revised Responsible Care Global Charter

More than 300 ICCA member chemical companies around the world have signed the revised Responsible Care Global Charter, including 80 percent of the largest 102 global chemical companies, as a show of our industry’s unified commitment to safe chemicals management.

The enhanced Global Charter includes more stringent process safety and facility security requirements, specific measures to advance sustainability, expand economic opportunity and improve use of resources, and expanded commitment to developing solutions to address societal challenges.
