Niacet signs Responsible Care Global Charter – January 29, 2015

On January 29, 2015 Niacet signed the Responsible Care® Global Charter. The charter arose from an examination of chemical industry practices and performance that has evolved since the1980s, and was shaped by considering the recommendations of independent stakeholders. The Charter goes beyond the original elements of Responsible Care. It focuses on new and important challenges facing the chemical industry and global society, including the growing public dialogue over sustainable development, public health issues related to the use of chemical products, the need for greater industry transparency, and the opportunity to achieve greater harmonization and consistency among the national Responsible Care programs currently implemented. The American Chemistry Council (ACC) and International Council of Chemical Associations (ICCA), through Responsible Care, will continue to undertake actions consistent with the environmental principles of the United Nations Global Compact.
