Shipping safely and responsibly

A safer, more sustainable supply chain.

At BDP, we move chemicals on a daily basis.

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.

Our Commitment

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.
