Responsible Care and Chemie³

The basis of our activities is the chemical industry’s worldwide sustainability initiative, called Responsible Care. All of the ALTANA Group’s managing directors personally signed this voluntary initiative and, based on it, submit an annual report to the German Chemical Industry Association (VCI), which uses the data for its annual Responsible Care progress report.

In Germany, the sustainability initiative Chemie ³ (Chemistry ³) has set itself the goal of achieving sustainability above and beyond the objectives of Responsible Care. The initiative was established by the VCI together with the German Mining, Chemical and Energy Industries Union (IG BCE), and the German Federation of Chemical Employers (BAVC). ALTANA supports this initiative because it is in line with our group’s Guiding Principles. An important part of the work of Chemie ³ is to convey to its members exemplary solutions and approaches for sustainable management.
