LEAWOOD, KS - Peninsula Polymers has successfully passed its NACD Responsible Distribution® verification for the current three-year cycle. Responsible Distribution is the National Association of Chemical Distributor’s (NACD) third-party-verified environmental, health, safety and security program that allows members to demonstrate their pledge to continuous performance improvement in every phase of chemical storage, handling, transportation and disposal.
“Responsible Distribution is critical to the chemical distribution industry’s ability to safely deliver more than 30 million tons of product every year,” said NACD President and CEO Eric R. Byer. “Through their successful verification, Peninsula Polymers and its senior leadership have committed to continuous improvement in the responsible management and handling of chemicals that ensures NACD members effectively support the industries America relies on most, such as agriculture, healthcare, oil and gas, manufacturing equipment, and many others.”
The Responsible Distribution program requires third-party verification of facilities against a set of principles, including strict adherence to widely accepted industry and business practices and participation with interested entities in creating responsible laws, regulations and systems to help safeguard communities, workplaces and the environment.
“Responsible Distribution has helped Peninsula Polymers establish and maintain industry best practices that ensure a safe working environment for our employees as well as help protect the communities we operate and live in,” said Richard Daigle, Director of Operations, Peninsula Polymers.
