Responsible Care® is a voluntary initiative of the global chemical industry to safely handle our products from inception in the research laboratory, through manufacture and distribution, to ultimate reuse, recycle and disposal, and to involve the public in our decision-making processes. Born in Canada in 1987, Responsible Care has quickly spread to 53 countries. While Responsible Care goes above and beyond what is legally required in most countries, we hold ourselves accountable by making Responsible Care a "condition of membership" in industry associations. Today, Responsible Care is taking leading chemical companies above and beyond their prior accomplishments, to achieve even higher standards of performance and generate greater value for their businesses.
Myriant is committed to the principles and practices promoted by American Chemistry Council Responsible Care Initiative. We firmly believe that Chemistry, when practiced responsibly, improves lives in many ways. As a company we have pledged resources to implement and sustain a robust Responsible Care Management System (RCMS). Due to our commitment, we will remain up to date on new legislation and regulations impacting the Environment, Health and Safety of our stakeholders. We also pledge our ongoing review and risk assessment of our practices to ensure continual improvement.
