DKSH North America successfully passes NACD Responsible Distribution verification

DKSH North America, Inc. has successfully passed its sixth-cycle of NACD (National Association of Chemical Distributors) Responsible Distribution verification for the current three-year cycle.

New Jersey, USA, November 7, 2018 – DKSH’s Business Unit Performance Materials in North America, a leading ingredients and specialty chemicals distributor, sustains its commitment to the health, safety and security of its employees, communities and the environment with the new NACD certification. The Responsible Distribution program allows members to demonstrate their commitment to continuous performance improvement in every phase of chemical storage, handling, transportation and disposal.

 

Participating companies must receive on-site, third-party verification of their facilities against a set of guiding principles, including strict adherence to laws and regulations, to pass verification. Participation in the program has significant benefits, including lower instances of safety and environmental incidents, better documentation of company policies, improved communication with local communities, reduced audit time and costs as well as increased credibility.

 

Kai Martin and Lance Croft, Co-Heads, Business Unit Performance Materials, DKSH North America, jointly commented: “We are very pleased to once again successfully pass the NACD Responsible Distribution verification. This certification highlights our commitment to growing as a responsible chemical distribution company where sustainability is firmly at the forefront of our priorities.”

 

DKSH recently published its first report on its economic, environmental and social activities based on the internationally recognized Global Reporting Initiative guidelines (GRI). Good corporate citizenship is an integral part of DKSH's business model. The GRI Report can be downloaded at: dksh.com/sustainability
