Seventeen Society of Chemical Manufacturers and Affiliates (SOCMA) member facilities are now exceeding key ChemStewards benchmarks, qualifying them for the program's highest ranking - the Excellence Tier. ChemStewards is an adaptable EHS&S program that promotes continuous performance improvement in specialty chemical manufacturing. The program is based on a three-tier system with key performance requirements per tier with increasing levels of difficulty.
To qualify for the Excellence Tier, or Tier Three, facilities must sign core principles, complete security requirements, meet specific metrics obligations and requirements, have at least one documented management review meeting and complete a third-party verification of management systems at the Enhanced Performance (Tier Two) level.
To maintain their ranking, facilities must sustain EHS&S performance metrics at or above the Excellence criteria.
