A safer, more sustainable supply chain.
This undertaking demands a process and strict set of guidelines to ensure we are operating in the safest, most responsible, and environmentally conscientious method. Enter Responsible Care®; a proven initiative that serves as the chemical industry’s environmental, health, safety, and security performance initiative. Responsible Care® is the chemical industry’s commitment to the safe, responsible, sustainable management of chemicals throughout their entire life cycle, and for their intended end use. It’s a better way of doing business, and it’s the right way to do business.
As a Responsible Care® Partner Company since 2003 and industry leader in chemical logistics management, we at BDP have committed to adhering to these standards through Responsible Care Management System® accreditation. We also worked with the Chemical Distribution Institute (CDI) and their Marine Packed Cargo Principles (MPC) and were the first international logistics company to be accredited under RCMS and IMPCAS protocols. These principles serve to continuously improve BDP's safety commitment to our employees and the supply chain value extended to our customers.
Our culture is one that celebrates safety and corporate responsibility, which is why we fully support and implement the guiding principles of Responsible Care® in our daily operations.
BDP is honored to have been named the Responsible Care® Partner of the Year in 2016, 2017 and 2020. The Responsible Care Partner Award recognizes the superb performance and safety record of companies involved in the distribution, transportation, storage, use, treatment-disposal, and/or sales and marketing of chemicals.
Responsible Care® is at the forefront of our daily business practices at BDP.
“The guiding principles of the ACC’s Responsible Care® program directly align with BDP’s commitment to implementing the safest and strictest handling of chemical shipments so that we can provide our customers with peace of mind while overseeing their intricate supply chains. To be honored for the second consecutive year is a true testament to BDP’s ongoing pledge to discipline and ethical behavior, and holding ourselves to the highest standards set forth in the chemical sector.”
Richard J. Bolte, Jr., BDP Chairman and CEO
In 2015, BDP launched the Responsible Care® Global Charter Campaign, our global commitment to continuously strengthening our performance and updating our progress on environmental, health and safety (EHS) performance measures.
