What is RC?
RC is an acronym for Responsible Care®. In the chemical industry, each company handling chemical substances is responsible for ensuring that safety, health, and environmental issues are addressed throughout the chemical lifecycle, from development and production to distribution, use, as well as end-of-life disposal and recycling, publishing the results of their activities and maintaining dialogue and communication with society - all voluntarily. This initiative is called "Responsible Care."
Started in Canada in 1985, Responsible Care is practiced in the chemical industries of 62 countries and regions of the world (as of 2017). It has attracted considerable international attention as a unique initiative unseen in other industries, and is even encouraged in an action plan (Agenda 21) for implementation by countries and related international organizations to achieve sustainable development in the 21st century that was adopted at the “Earth Summit” (United Nations Conference on Environment and Development) held in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil in June 1992.
