With its processes and products, its economic success and societal commitment the chemical industry makes major contributions to a sustainable development of our world. Together with the Mining, Chemical and Energy Industrial Union (IG BCE) and the German Federation of Chemical Employers’ Associations (BAVC) the VCI is an alliance partner of the sustainability initiative Chemie³. Responsible Care is a significant contribution to Chemie³: under the RC programme, chemical companies demonstrate responsible action in the fields of environment, safety and health.
