Responsible Care, Global compact & Climate pledge
Responsible Care is an initiative of the International Council of Chemical Associations (CICA) and the global chemical industry in which the companies in this sector, with the support of their national associations, continually striving to improve the protection of health, safety and environmental performance, while communicating with stakeholders about their products and processes. Responsible Care is the ethical foundation that allows the creation of essential products that contribute to a sustainable future. These new products and new technologies are the worldwide efforts to reduce energy consumption, minimize greenhouse gas emissions (GHGs) and reduce the ecological footprint of human activities on our planet and its resources.
The Global Compact is an agreement by which companies are committed to aligning their operations and strategies with ten universally accepted principles in human rights, labor standards, the environment and the fight against corruption. The first task of the Global Compact, the world’s corporate citizenship initiative that includes 12,000 participants in over 145 countries, is to promote business as a legitimate force in society and identify markets to target. Joining the Global Compact means sharing the conviction that business practices based on a number of universally-recognized principles contribute to the emergence of more stable, more equitable and more open and dynamic societies and a more prosperous global market.
The Climate Pledge isan initiative started in 2015 in anticipation of the COP21 in Paris in which French companies of all sizes and sectors announced the signing of a joint commitment to the climate: the French Business Climate Pledge. In 2015, 39 major French companies had already committed to fight climate change, bringing with them their entire ecosystem. To celebrate the One Planet Summit launched by the President of France on December 12, 2017, the companies announced that they were strengthening their commitments for the following three years. Fifty additional companies joined this mobilization, bringing the number of French Business Climate Pledge signatory companies to 89. In total, these companies represent 6 million jobs and a global scope of €1.5 billion in net revenue or net banking income.
In order to move to a low-carbon society, these companies will commit more than €320 billion in funding, research and development, and innovation between 2016 and 2020. The detailed contributions of each company are presented in the document entitled “French Business Climate Pledge – French companies commit to the climate.” The signing of these 91 companies marks a new stage. Other companies have already expressed willingness to join them to innovate and generate low-carbon products, solutions and services.
