Crismachem joins Responsible Care Program

– Marcelo Montoro –

Responsible Care® is the global chemical industry´s voluntary initiative to drive continuous improvement in safe chemicals management and achieve excellence in environmental, health, safety, security and communication performance, according to the principles of Sustainable Development.

AECQ | Asociación Española del Comercio Químico manages the Responsible Care Program for Distributors of Chemical Products in Spain, based on the Responsible Care Program of Fecc (European Association of Chemical Distributors) which in turn is based on the 8 Guiding Principles of ICCTA (International Council of Chemical Trade Associations) RC/RD.

In Europe, more than 300 Chemical Distribution companies are joined to Responsible Care, an international initiative present in more than 50 countries worldwide.

The objectives of the Program are perfectly aligned with CRISMACHEM´s CSR objectives, which are based on an integrating vision of the legitimate development of the productive activity of chemical companies together with the contribution of this industry to social welfare and sustainable development, deepening for this in all areas of social responsibility.

Crismachem is recognized as Innovative SME by the Government of Spain, through the Ministry of Science and Innovation

– Eugenio Navarro –


Innovation is one of the essential factors for the economic growth of a country, hence it occupies a prominent place in European and national policies, becoming one of the key factors to job creation, medium-term growth, productivity and ultimately the improvement of competitiveness.

When it comes to innovation in SMEs, there are those who think that to be an innovative company it is enough to research or apply new ways of doing things in production processes or services. But beyond this reality, in order to be an innovative SME, in addition to a series of formal requirements, a real activity in terms of innovation policy must be demonstrated.

Spanish Royal Decree 475/2014 of 13th June 2014 establishes the definition of Innovative SME and through which the Ministry of Sicience and innovation recognizes companies that carry out R&D&I activities. This seal distinguishes companies that are committed to innovation by carrying out intensive activity in this area.
In this way, and after the certification of its R&D&I management system in accordance with the UNE EN 166002 standard, CRISMACHEM takes another step in increasing the added value of the brand.
