LyondellBasell Named Responsible Care Company of the Year
The American Chemistry Council (ACC) has named LyondellBasell a Responsible Care Company of the Year, in recognition of the company’s outstanding achievement in environmental, health, safety and security (EHS&S) performance.
It is one of four companies that received the award ACC President and Chief Executive Officer Cal Dooley praised the efforts put in over the past year.
“The American Chemistry Council is pleased to recognize LyondellBasell with its highest honor – the Responsible Care Company of the Year Award,” he said.
“Through its leadership and commitment to superior environmental performance and the health and safety of its workers and the community as a whole, LyondellBasell is leading our industry in building a safer, more sustainable future.”

LyondellBasell Chief Executive Officer Jim Gallogly said: “We never forget the real reason LyondellBasell is a Responsible Care company; it’s because we are protecting those who work in our plants and those who are our neighbors and customers.
“We take our Responsible Care commitment very personally and thank the ACC for recognizing us as we pursue health and safety excellence.”
