The SAICM Journey: 20 Milestones to 2020 [INFOGRAPHIC]

The International Council of Chemical Associations (ICCA) has made real, tangible progress on the road to sound chemicals management.

That’s because ICCA is an association of innovators, visionaries, solutions providers and product stewardship pioneers. Above all, we are optimists. What others see as challenges, we see as opportunities to solve some of the world’s biggest problems.
