Responsible Care® Codes

The Responsible Care® Operations, Stewardship, and Accountability Codes influence the decisions which CIAC member-companies make every day—decisions that are key to creating more sustainable products and processes.

The Operations Code outlines how Responsible Care companies should manage their facilities and equipment to ensure they’re operated in a safe and responsible way. Companies must work to continuously improve the environmental performance of their facilities and processes.

Under the Stewardship Code, companies must regularly review the value, impact, and safety of the products they make and the services and technologies they use. They must also work with their business partners—suppliers, distributors, and customers—to ensure the stewardship and security of their products during their entire life cycle.

Finally, the Accountability Code requires companies to communicate the risks and benefits of their operations to those who live near their facilities, or in communities along transportation corridors, as well as to other stakeholders. Companies must work to address any concerns these groups may have.
