Responsible Care is the chemical industry’s commitment to continuously improve its health and safety practices, its environmental policies and its relationship with the broader community. Over 50 countries operate a Responsible Care program and in the UK it is overseen by the Chemical Business Association (CBA).
PennWhite has been a certified full member of the CBA since 2010 and in 2011 we launched our first 3-year Responsible Care improvement plan. The plan introduced indices of performance specifically to address the “Eight Guiding Principles” of Responsible Care. Our current 3-year improvement plan, like its predecessors, is regularly reviewed as part of our internal audit program.
