This verification reaffirms that our company demonstrates the expertise, stewardship, and professionalism to achieve the highest in quality, safety, sustainability, and performance through ACD Responsible DistributionTM. Established in 1991, Responsible Distribution is a trusted and comprehensive set of environmental, health, safety, security, and sustainability standards that demand continuous 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 500 million tons of essential ingredients every year,” said ACD President and CEO, Eric R. Byer. “Through their successful verification, Norman Fox has committed to the continuous improvement of the chemical distribution industry’s responsible management and handling of chemicals that ensure ACD members effectively support industries the U.S. relies on most, like agriculture, healthcare, oil and gas, manufacturing equipment, and many others.”

The Responsible Distribution program requires verification of facilities against a set of guiding principles, including unwavering adherence to laws and regulations and participation with interested entities in creating responsible laws, regulations, and practices to help safeguard the community, workplace, and environment.

Participation in Responsible Distribution has significant benefits, including lower instances of safety and environmental incidents, safer, socially responsible, and environmentally friendly business practices, and better communication with local communities. This leads to continuous improvement in sustainability and innovation based on recognized best practices with strict adherence to regulatory requirements.

“Responsible Distribution has been a cornerstone of our environmental, health, safety, and security programs; it ensures that we are doing the right things for our employees, customers, community, and suppliers,” said Stephen Halpin, President of Norman Fox.
