A Journey Toward Sustainability

A Journey Toward Sustainability

Science is fundamental to understanding our world’s most pressing challenges, and essential to overcoming them. The chemical industry is deploying our best minds in chemistry, engineering and science to advance safe, innovative, effective chemical products and technologies that unlock sustainable solutions.

At the same time, chemicals must be produced and used in ways that protect the health of people and the environment. We hold ourselves to this standard, and we are helping other manufacturers and businesses that use chemicals in their operations or products do the same.

The American Chemistry Council and its members adhere to a set of Sustainability Principles. And Responsible Care® is the foundation behind our industry’s commitment to sustainability.

Through Responsible Care, ACC members:

ACC recognizes Ethyl Corp. as 2021 Responsible Care® Company of the Year

Product Safety Code
