Chemical enterprises hope for trust from the public
About 40 leading multinational chemical enterprises around China signed an agreement yesterday with the Association of International Chemical Manufacturers to strengthen their practice of social responsibility.
The renewed Responsible Care Global Chapter – a kind of duty statement strengthening corporate commitment to the safe management of chemicals, protecting humans and the environment, as well as contributing to sustainable development – was signed by 37 companies, all of which are members of AICM. The program is to ensure that the chemical industry develops on the right track.
Meanwhile, the 2018 Open-to-Public Day, a key implementation of Responsible Care which invites people to visit chemical plants, get familiar with the industry and, hopefully, attracts more professionals to contribute to its development, also ended yesterday.
Enterprises such as Lanxess and Wacker said that the program helped to build a communication channel between chemical corporations and the public.
AICM was founded in 1988, representing nearly 70 major transnational chemical enterprises in China. It commits to promoting responsible care and other globally recognized chemical management in China.
