Esseco UK is a member of the UK Chemical Industries Association and is a signatory to the Responsible Care Management Framework. Responsible Care is an international chemical industry voluntary initiative. It is designed to not only improve the performance of the chemical industry in the fields of Health, Safety, Environment, security, product safety, emergency response and relations with the public, but also to enable companies to demonstrate that these improvements are taking place. Responsible Care concerns continual improvement in performance and communication.

All potential new products and processes are thoroughly assessed and evaluated before introduction. Those with potential environmental problems are avoided. Processes generating minimal waste or by-products are selected by preference. Energy requirements are always considered when developing new processes.
