Responsible Care & Responsible Distribution

For many years now, Brenntag has taken part in the “Responsible Care & Responsible Distribution” (RC/RD) Program of the organization of the International Council of Chemical Trade Associations (ICCTA). We are therefore committed to the implementation of the eight guidelines laid down in this global program covering the following areas:

  • Legal requirements
  • Management of risk
  • Policies and documentation
  • Provision of information
  • Training
  • Emergency response
  • Ongoing improvements
  • Community interaction

Brenntag’s implementation of the contents of the RC/RD Program is reviewed by external experts. Environmental performance and safe handling of chemicals are thus reviewed and documented by independent third parties.

Brenntag North America maintains a long standing dedication to responsible distribution through our leadership role in the NACD and its related goal for constant improvement in all areas of product stewardship. We work with local, state, and national organizations to increase awareness of environmental performance, human health awareness, worker safety programs, and the benefits of chemicals and the necessity for responsible use.

The Responsible Distribution Process® includes auditing by third party firms and continues to be in full compliance with all aspects of the NACD program. Several independent auditors have even described our efforts with phrases such as ‘model program’ and ‘prevention culture’.
