Responsible Care® is a voluntary initiative within the global chemical community, committed to constant improvement in environmental, safety and health issues. Company commitment to transparency toward the community and public regarding activities, products, operations and improvements is the basis of the 'Responsible Care' principles.
Born in Canada in 1985, Responsible Care initiative has quickly spread to 47 countries around the world and 90% of the chemicals produced globally are produced by companies who are members of the program.
In July 2003 Gadiv Petrochemical Industries Ltd. signed on to the 'Responsible Care Guiding Principles' to join a long and honorable list of chemical producers:
The chemical industry creates products and services that make life better for people around the world – both today and tomorrow. The benefits of our industry are accompanied by enduring commitments to Responsible Care in the management of chemicals worldwide. We will make continuous progress toward the vision of no accidents, injuries or harm to the environment and will publicly report our global health, safety and environmental performance. We will lead our companies in ethical ways that increasingly benefit society, the economy and the environment while adhering to the following principles:
