Responsible Care

Responsible Care is the global chemical industry’s unique initiative to improve health, environmental performance, enhance security and to communicate with stakeholders about products and processes.

GPCA adopted Responsible Care in 2009 and since then the majority of its members have embedded the initiative in their daily operations, with 35 percent of GPCA’s full members having obtained certification for the Responsible Care Management System Standard or RC 14001. The International Council of Chemical Associations (ICCA), which addresses the Responsible Care initiative on a global level, ranked GPCA as the top performing association amongst 57 associations, for the implementation of the Responsible Care initiative two years in a row.



Gulf SQAS (Sustainability & Quality Assessment System) is a system to evaluate the environmental, health, safety, security and quality performance of Logistics Service Providers (LSPs) in a uniform manner by single standardised assessments carried out by independent assessors using a standard questionnaire. An SQAS assessment does not lead to a certificate but offers a detailed factual report which each chemical company needs to evaluate according to its own requirements.

Initiated by CEFIC in 1994, GPCA adopted the Gulf SQAS program in 2013 when 29 CEOs of our Full Member Companies signed the Declaration of Support, committing to adhere to the principles of Gulf SQAS. Since then, a growing number of chemical companies are now encouraging their LSPs to perform assessments and working with them to implement improvements.
