The European Responsible Care® Awards 2021
Responsible Care Award winners to be announced in October 2021
Each year, the Responsible Care® Awards recognise outstanding and innovative work among chemical companies and federations on their journey towards safe chemicals management and performance excellence.
Four categories to show industry commitment to support the crisis
Following the “Caring in COVID-19 times” awards programme launched in 2020, this year, we will continue to show the industry’s commitment to support during the crisis; by caring for the mental health of company employees or accelerating the production of medical devices, while also recognising projects that support climate neutrality, circularity, resource efficiency and more!
Supporting health in COVID-19 times
Initiatives that demonstrate the industry’s continued support to protect the health of workers and the community as the COVID-19 pandemic continues. i.e. those that support mental health of company employees or accelerate the production of medical devices.
