28-Jan-2010 - Canadian Chemical Producers' Association

Introducing the Chemistry Industry Association of Canada

The Canadian Chemical Producers' Association has reinvented itself as the Chemistry Industry Association of Canada, to reflect the changing face of the chemistry sector and its renewed commitment to environmental sustainability.

This is the biggest change in the Association's history. In addition to chemical manufacturing, the sector now produces bio-based compounds, new technologies, and "green" chemistry solutions. The Association has expanded its membership to include new players committed to the Responsible Care(R) ethic and principles.

Richard Paton, President of the Chemistry Industry Association of Canada, says the Association's member companies will be at the forefront of the sustainability movement.

"Companies are innovating, thinking about conservation issues, energy efficiency, and preventative action in dealing with their chemicals and products."
