VECAP RECOGNISED BY INDUSTRY AS AN OUTSTANDING TOOL IN PRODUCT STEWARDSHIP
INCREASED LEVEL OF PARTICIPATION IN VOLUNTARY PROGRAMME CONFIRMS FLAME RETARDANT INDUSTRY COMMITMENT TO IMPLEMENT BEST PRACTICES
The results of the Voluntary Emissions Control Action Programme (VECAP) Annual Progress Report, released today, revealed continued growth in participation to the programme, with 95% coverage of the sales volume. The number of VECAP-certified sites grew from three to five compared to last year, external certification being the gold standard in the level of commitment to VECAP.
"The principles underlying VECAP may be applicable to the handling of other chemicals and Cefic is committed to increasing industry's awareness of this programme. At a time when the chemical industry and its supply chain are preparing for REACH, VECAP is an example of how cooperation throughout the value chain can be enhanced for the benefit of the environment."Alain Perroy, Director, European Chemical Industry Council (Cefic)
