This is not the official website of the International Council of Chemical Associations (ICCA), but a portal aimed at sharing useful information about the organisation.
ICCA is the trade association of the global chemical industry for both national members such as the American Chemistry Council, as well as regional trade associations such as the Gulf Petrochemicals and Chemicals Association. The organisation represents chemical companies that account for more than 75% of total world production.
ICCA advocates for, and promotes sound chemical management through the integration of science and risk-based regulation and voluntary initiatives including Responsible Care and GPS. It fosters action-oriented collaborations between civil societies, governments, and industries in improving chemical management and enhancing product stewardship globally.
Together with other stakeholders at the 2002 Johannesburg World Summit on Sustainable Development, ICCA established a blueprint on chemicals, that by 2020, the use and production of chemicals should be in a manner that has reduced negative impact on the environment and human health. Therefore, they developed a policy framework which calls on the developed nations to share expertise with other countries on promoting chemical safety around the world.
ICCA is at the forefront of ensuring that there is safe production and use of chemicals as it drives all the three dimensions of sustainable development, namely social, economic and environmental. Through initiatives such as Responsible Care and the Global Strategy, members continue to spearhead efforts geared towards economic growth, social equity and environmental health in the developing countries.
