Responsible Care® and chemical management systems 

Since 1988, Eastman has been an active supporter and participant in the chemical industry’s Responsible Care® initiative. The general management practices developed for Responsible Care have been further refined and incorporated into a series of corporate Health, Safety, Environmental and Security (HSES) policies which Eastman applies to its operations and businesses globally. Eastman’s Responsible Care Pledge, outlining our approach to protecting people and the environment, has been one of the company’s guiding documents for years. We observed our 25th anniversary of Responsible Care in 2013. This program is familiar to Eastman team members around the world and is the way we operate our facilities and do business. What began as a list of management practices has become an integrated management system, complete with performance metrics and goals, public reporting, internal audits and third-party audits.

Several of our manufacturing locations, including our corporate headquarters, have attained third-party certification of HSES management systems as part of their commitment to excellence or to meet business needs. Currently, Eastman has certified 20 of 36 manufacturing locations* for a total of 56% in environmental management systems. Eastman has also certified 20 of 36 manufacturing locations* for a total of 56% in health and safety.

Our quality management system (QMS) certifications, including ISO 9001 and additional quality certifications, can be found on our Quality Site.


*Certifications include manufacturing sites and corporate headquarters
