- Responsible Care Global Charter: This is a global and voluntary initiative of the chemical industry focused on the continuous improvement of the Health, Safety and Environmental Issues, together with a transparent and honest communication. Responsible Care is based on the principles of Sustainable Development and, at the same time, has a goal to achieve that the chemical products contribute to the world growth.

The companies which have joined the World Pact share the conviction that managerial practices based on universal principles contribute to the construction of a more stable, fair and inclusive global market, that fosters more prosperous societies.
