According to ACC, Responsible Care® is the chemical manufacturing industry’s environmental, health, safety and security (EHSS) performance initiative. For more than 30 years, Responsible Care has helped ACC member companies significantly enhance their performance and improve the health and safety of their employees, the communities in which they operate and the environment.

The purpose of the annual ACC-sponsored conference is to educate Responsible Care Partner companies about new developments, processes and standards to help enhance and promote safe operations and chemicals management throughout the value chain.
