GPCA Responsible Care Conference

GPCA Responsible Care Conference

October 31-November 2, 2021

The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted every industry and domain, including Environment, Health, Safety & Security (EHS&S). While innumerable risks have stemmed out from this outbreak, the EHS&S domain has been at the forefront to manage the health and safety of its employees and customers as well as ensuring business continuity while managing risks.

EHS&S leaders from the regional chemical industry have stood strong and risen to challenges by planning and executing concrete responses to COVID-19 and adding a myriad of new responsibilities, which have supported the industry and wider community.

During this uncertain period, the Responsible Care® initiative played an important role in preparing members to stay resilient and overcome the many challenges that came their way, specifically in industrial operations. Today the adoption of new technologies and innovation in the operational systems are bringing a fresh perspective to the industry, driving greater efficiency, unlocking new opportunities, as well as enabling better risk management and preparedness. It is now time for the industry to transform to a proactive mindset, to keep Responsible Care at the centre stage and to prepare for the next wave of disruption.

GPCA is proud to host the 4th GPCA Responsible Care Conference scheduled from 31 October – 2 November 2021 at Crowne Plaza RDC Hotel, Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. Held under the theme ‘Seizing the new normal opportunities through Responsible Care’, the dialogues at the conference will bring EHSS leaders from the petrochemical industry to look back and share their learnings, best practices, and the future roadmap beyond the pandemic. The event will also showcase a series of interactive masterclasses which will delve deeper on subjects like process safety and highlight evolving technologies transforming EHSS. It will also feature thought-provoking workshops on product stewardship and good manufacturing practices and contractor management challenges and expectations.
