Responsible Care® In Action

Responsible Care® Delivers Results

In the early 1990s, CIAC began collecting data that clearly showed Responsible Care® was working – a pattern of continuous improvement that is still evident today. Workplace safety has improved dramatically; since 1992, CIAC members have reduced the number of injuries and illnesses at their facilities by 60 per cent. Members have also substantially reduced their environmental footprint – a unit of Canadian chemical product is now manufactured with 87 per cent fewer emissions than in 1992. Today, CIAC member-companies are pushing themselves even further, by finding innovative ways to make their operations more sustainable. Below you’ll find examples of how they’re doing just that.
