Responsible Care

The Chemical Manufacturers' Association (CMA) (1991) has published its Responsible Care Code, to which all member organizations have committed. The codes aim to improve the chemical industry's management of chemicals, safety, health, and environmental performance.

Figure 3.2.2 presents the responsible care codes for pollution prevention. The codes do not constitute a methodology in that they do not prescribe how any organization implements them. Rather, they describe hallmarks that successful pollution prevention programs share. The codes also provide a series of checkpoints for an organization to incorporate into its methodology.
