EFRA RECEIVES SPECIAL COMMENDATION FROM CEFIC FOR VECAP
EFRA was awarded a special praise from Cefic for VECAP on 28 September at the annual European Responsible Care 2012 Award ceremony at the Global Chemical Industry European Convention in London.
The judges paid tribute to the programme as an innovative environmental management tool for handling chemicals through the supply chain, demonstrating the active involvement of companies to adapt practices.
"Proceeding with a voluntary undertaking like VECAP allows a continued use of a chemical substance when, for example, there are concerns about its harmfulness, but it is nonetheless considered essential to society. We hope that this undertaking will continue to go forward smoothly, with the understanding of the concerned business entities."Japanese Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI)
