The Chemistry Industry Association of Canada is committed to responding to the serious issue of climate change.
Since 1992, members of the Association have decreased their carbon dioxide emissions by 87 per cent. In addition, emissions of carbon dioxide per unit of product has declined by 15 per cent. In terms of global warming potential, member companies' greenhouse gas emissions (including carbon dioxide) have declined 66 per cent since 1992. We believe our progress over the past 17 years is a testament to the effectiveness of Responsible Care®.
We actively participate in the Industry Steering Committee on Climate Change (ISC3) with other industry stakeholders and engage in dialogue with officials at the federal and provincial levels. Our aim is to help create a sustainable framework for regulating greenhouse gas emissions, while maintaining economic competitiveness and growth for in the future.
