CAIA Introduces a New Responsible Care® Award to Recognise Sustained High Performance
The year 2017 saw the new Responsible Care® Sustained High Performance Award being introduced that aims to recognise signatories for sustained high performance across three years of operations. Concern was expressed that signatories who may have reached a ceiling in terms of performance improvements would not be recognised for the achievements made in safety, health and environmental performance. The matter was carefully considered as the principle of the Responsible Care® Initiative is one of striving for continuous year-on-year improvement in performance. After due process had been undertaken, it was decided to launch the new Award in two categories that are based on the number of applicable indicators and a Sustained High Performance Index.
