Brussels/Belgium — Every year, the European Chemical Industry Council (Cefic) awards excellence in improving health, safety and environmental standards in the chemical industry with the Chemical Safety Award. Marco Mensink, Cefic Director General, commented that the 2019 awards showcased the industry’s commitment to ensuring safe products and workplaces, efficient processes and circular models, as well as overall performance excellence.
Solvay received this recognition for their Product Stewardship Management System which ensures safety and compliance for the company's 12,000 customers and the 16,500 marketed products.
