Responsible Care
In 2013, we celebrate our 25th anniversary of participation in Responsible Care®. The program is now very familiar to all Eastman employees around the world and represents our commitment to protect the environment and the health and safety of our employees, communities and people who handle our products. It has become the way we operate our facilities and do business and ties closely with our corporate commitment to sustainability. In fact, Eastman was named 2013 Responsible Care® Company of the Year in the large company category by the American Chemistry Council (ACC) in recognition of superior health, safety, environmental and security (HSE&S) performance. This is ACC’s top honor given to member companies that have enhanced and embraced the Responsible Care ethic throughout their organizations.
