Protecting people, planet and profit in our quest for performance excellence

Through voluntary industry initiatives like Responsible Care® and Gulf SQAS, GPCA leads the way in promoting sustainability practices and industry excellence among key stakeholders throughout the region. This is apparent in GPCA’s recognition by the International Council of Chemical Associations (ICCA) where it leads the rankings in its adoption and implementation of Responsible Care®, the chemical industry’s unique global initiative that drives continuous improvement in the Environment, Health, Safety and Security (EHS&S) performance.

For almost 10 years, GPCA has helped member companies enhance their performance and reputation, discover new business opportunities, as well as improve the health and safety of their employees and communities, and the environment in which they operate. As a key element of Responsible Care® for logistics operations, Gulf SQAS is a system designed to evaluate the EHSS&Q performance of Logistic Service Providers (LSPs) in the Arabian Gulf using standardized modular assessment questionnaires. With the standards of those companies being SQAS assessed improving rapidly, GPCA has an ambitious plan to develop the scheme further and continue the momentum.
