Corporate Responsibility

Committed to work responsibly

William Blythe is committed to managing its business in a safe and responsible manner. For us responsibility means economic, environmental and social responsibility, so we work with customers, suppliers, employees, shareholders and the communities around our site to improve our environmental performance, health, safety and security. To help ensure continuous improvement in these critical areas the company is accredited to the environmental management system ISO 14001:2004 (a copy of the certificate in PDF can be found here).

As a member of the UK’s Chemical Industries Association (CIA) William Blythe is also fully committed to the Responsible Care® programme.

Responsible Care® is the global chemical industry’s unique initiative to improve health, environmental performance, enhance security, and to communicate with stakeholders about products and processes. It commits companies to continuously improve their SHE knowledge and the performance of technologies, processes and products over their life cycles so as to avoid harm to people and the environment. Since its inception in Canada in 1985, Responsible Care® has spread to 60 countries globally, driving companies beyond SHE compliance to higher standards of performance and generating business value.
