As a member of the American Chemistry Council (ACC), and through ACC participation with the International Council of Chemical Associations (ICCA), Solvay Chemicals is actively engaged in the Global Product Strategy (GPS) initiative.
GPS, which is designed to meet United Nation's Strategic Approach to Chemicals Management, is an innovative program to improve product stewardship throughout the supply chain. Its ultimate goal is to increase public and stakeholder awareness and confidence that chemicals in commerce are safely managed throughout their lifecycle. This is evident in the management system approach to product stewardship adopted by ACC member companies (RCMS®) and in the processes Solvay Chemicals has adopted to manage the hazards and risks associated with the chemicals we place in commerce (see above).
Companies engaged in GPS are also committed to making relevant product stewardship information on chemicals they place in commerce publicly available. By 2012, Solvay Chemicals will post summaries for all its high priority* products.
