The Synthetic Organic Chemical Manufacturers’ Association (SOCMA) has awarded the 2004 Responsible Care Achievement Award to Sun Chemical Performance Pigments’ manufacturing facility in Muskegon, MI.
The award is given each year to manufacturing sites across the country that demonstrate an exceptional commitment to protecting human health and the environment. Responsible Care is a voluntary initiative within the chemical industry that supports continual improvement in environmental, health, safety and security performance.
“Sun Chemical Performance Pigments’ Muskegon facility has put a tremendous amount of effort into improving its performance in environmental, health and safety management,” said Eldon Fink, Sun Chemical’s director of environmental health, safety and regulatory. “As a result, we have improved our EHS performance trends, which translates into a measurable, positive impact on our people and our business. We are proud of these accomplishments and grateful to SOCMA for this award.”
In addition, the facility obtained ISO 14001 certification.
Sun Chemical will accept the award this year at SOCMA’s 83rd Annual Dinner in New York City.
