Responsible Care is the worldwide chemical industry's own, unique initiative - a voluntary programme that helps it to raise its standards and win greater trust from the public. The Responsible Care programme is strongly supported and endorsed by all ESIG member companies.
Responsible Care is more than a set of principles and declarations. Through the sharing of information and a rigorous system of checklists, performance indicators and verification procedures, it enables the industry to demonstrate how it has improved over the years and to develop policies for further improvement.
ESIG is also part of the prisme2 Responsible Care project. Launched in 2008 prisme2 is designed to involve small and medium enterprises in Responsible Care.
