Responsible Care Policy and Management

Initiatives to Spread Responsible Care through Associations

The Mitsui Chemicals Group is in the position to promote responsible care activities via each country’s chemical industry association.

At the Japan Chemical Industry Association (JCIA), the head of the RC and Quality Assurance Division has been a JCIA board member since the 2010 establishment of a Responsible Care Committee and, also since 2010, has worked as a member of the Chemical Management Committee, thereby contributing to the development of responsible care in Japan.

At the International Council of Chemical Associations (ICCA), the Company’s president has been a director since 2014, and from 2016 the Company’s participation has included the vice-chairperson of the Responsible Care Leadership Group (RC-LG) and chairman of the Asia-Pacific Responsible Care Organization (APRO). Since 2015, our employees also have been co-chairing the Joint Capacity Building Task Force of each Leadership Group and, since 2009, have served as members of the Energy and Climate Change Leadership Group and are contributing to the development of international responsible care.
