Gathering for the cause of advocating a chemical-safe world by 2020,over 800 delegates, including ministers, CEOs, heads of intergovernmental organizations and leaders of civil society, convened at the 4th International Conference on Chemicals Management (ICCM4), committed to protect people and the environment from risks of ineffectively managed chemicals. The Conference was held from 28 September to 02 October in Geneva, Switzerland. It included a high-level segment to focus on how the Strategic Approach to International Chemicals Management (SAICM) can contribute to implementing and achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Representatives of the global chemical business at the conference included the International Council of Chemical Associations (ICCA), which has led the “Responsible Care Global Charter”, promoting responsible management of chemicals throughout their lifecycle. ICCA is strongly committed to advancing Strategic Approach to International Chemicals Management (SAICM) implementation and promoting the sustainable and effective management of chemicals globally.

As a member of ICCA, GPCA was well-represented at the conference by Mr. Mutlaq Al-Morished, Board Member of GPCA and Tasnee CEO, and by Dr. Ahmed Al-Hazmi, GPCA Advisor. Mr. Al-Morished was a panelist of the 2nd session of the ICCA-sponsored side event titled “The SAICM Journey to 2020 and Beyond” where he highlighted that sound chemicals management through Responsible Care has developed rapidly in the Arabian Gulf region in a very short period of time. He emphasized the strong contribution of GPCA to the region as a result of its work in Responsible Care. His presentation was well-received by the audience commending GPCA’s commitment to implementing SAICM in the GCC. Meanwhile, Dr. Ahmed Al-Hazmi will continue working closely with governments to share and strengthen GPCA’s position and to oversee SAICM progress in each GCC country.
