Chemistry is everywhere: everything we eat, drink, play with and live in is made of chemicals. Both natural and synthetic chemicals are essential for life as we know it. Most people know that chemistry has a positive impact on well-being. They see how chemistry is part of the solution, on issues such as sustainable energy, healthcare, access to food and drinking water, and pollution. The chemistry community is entrepreneurial, environmentally and socially conscious and creative. At the same time, it is not difficult to identify risks concerning chemicals, such as industrial accidents, worker safety and - again - pollution.

The chemical distribution industry has an important role in enabling chemistry to make a positive impact, while managing the associated risks. Aside from taking responsibility for the safety of their own operations, the chemical distribution industry communicates with its customers and suppliers about risk management measures and safe use.

ICTA represents the chemical distribution industry and promotes the safe and sustainable use of chemicals to benefit to you and the environment. Explore this website and share your thoughts with us.
