The program of Responsible Care (RC) is a key element in management of the Asahi Kasei Group, not only for the chemical business, but for all areas of business including medical enterprises. RC represents the commitment and initiative to secure and improve safety and environmental protection at every step of the product life cycle through the individual determination and responsibility of each firm producing and handling chemical products. Our responsibility regarding safety and environmental protection is all the greater as a company pursuing business that contributes to the health of people around the world. In the healthcare field where human life and health is at stake, it is essential for us to assure the quality of products and services that affect people’s lives while also assuring safety and environmental protection for the people who make our products and the communities in which we do business.
In the pursuit of our manufacturing activities, it is our hope that the choice of our products and technologies produced through this initiative will attest to the environmental concern and social responsibility of the businesses and medical professionals who are our end users.
