Responsible Care

Responsible Care

The 1992 Environment and Development Conference in Rio de Janeiro, organised by the UN environmental organisation UNEP, established the general principle of Sustainable Development as a common objective for the international community.

The general principles of the worldwide Responsible Care┬╣ Initiative have been committed to by companies of the chemical industry and the German chemical distribution industry.

These companies agree with the ideas of UNEP that environmental and developmental problems are mostly of a global nature and that solutions demand responsible actions by everyone involved.
