Responsible Care

Our Commitment to Environment, Health, Safety and Security

Responsible CareĀ® is the chemical industry's world-class environmental, health, safety and security performance initiative. Developed as a voluntary initiative by member companies of the Chemistry Industry Association of Canada (CIAC) and the American Chemistry Council (ACC), Responsible Care partners commit to a set of guiding principles to significantly enhance employee safety, community health and environmental sustainability in the locations where we operate.  

CP is an active transportation service provider to the North American chemical industry and has long been a partner of the Responsible Care program, formally joining in 1998. As of 2007, CP has also implemented the Responsible Care Management System (RCMS). 

RCMS is an integrated, structured management system designed to improve company performance in the following key areas: community awareness and emergency response, security, distribution, employee health and safety, pollution prevention, and process and product safety. CP's RCMS system includes regular third-party verification of a member's management system and programs against the RCMS standard.

By implementing Responsible Care across our company, CP is ensuring that our role in supporting the North American chemical industry is safe, secure and sustainable.
