3 May 2022

The Chemical Business Association (CBA) has announced the winners of its Responsible Care Awards at the 2022 Annual Lunch (Floggers) at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London.

These annual Awards recognise excellence by CBA member companies in relation to the operation of its Responsible Care programme, an industry-wide initiative promoting year-on-year improvements in health, safety, security, and environmental performance and on member companies’ interaction with their local communities.

Michael Cooper, CBA Responsible Care Coordinator, commented, “the CBA is committed to highlighting excellence amongst our members and this year’s winners of the Responsible Care Award both demonstrated the qualities we wish to promote.”

This year’s award for Office-Only Distributor was won by Opes International Limited.

Opes is a global supplier of commodity and specialty chemical products to a wide range of industries. They specialise in the sales, marketing, and distribution of chemical and raw material products to the paint, coatings, inks, resin, textile, adhesives, construction, and plastics industries.

2021 was a significant year for this company and they have made major improvements to their sustainable procurement programme and widened the range of their business compliance systems.

The award for Distributor with an Operational Site was won by Alcohols Limited.
