Responsible Care - Responsible Handling of Chemicals
Biesterfeld plays an active role in the Responsible Care programme of the Chemical Distribution Association (Verband Chemiehandel e. V.) and promotes the exchange of knowledge and experience in relation to awareness of responsibility in its actions.
By taking part in the Responsible Care programme, we are committed as a chemicals distributor, to act with appropriate responsibility beyond the statutory regulations and provide continuous improvement in the areas of environment, health and safety.
The tasks of the Responsible Care Programme include:
- Product responsibility
- System safety
- Health and safety at work
- Environmental protection
- Transport safety
- Dialogue – Information for the public
We are highly committed towards fulfilling our responsibilities. We regularly communicate the "Indices of Performance", which are collected and published for all member companies. In this way, we ensure a consistent Responsible Care certification.
