Product Stewardship

At NOVA Chemicals, we are committed to managing the impact of our products across the full product lifecycle. Our product stewardship program addresses product regulations and risk management in new product design, market development, raw material selection, product manufacturing, distribution and sales, product applications, recovery or reuse, and disposal.

Our commitment to product stewardship involves our employees, customers and distributors, our suppliers, carriers, regulatory authorities and other interested parties. Our work includes:

  • Supporting  product research
  • Promoting stewardship
  • Maintaining accurate product stewardship information
  • Ensuring compliance with regulations
  • Advising customers on product selection and performance
  • Working with selected trade associations to address major public issues confronting the chemical and plastics industries

We are engaged with the Global Product Strategy (GPS) of the International Council of Chemical Associations' (ICCA) through our membership in the American Chemistry Council (ACC) and the Chemistry Industry Association of Canada (CIAC). GPS is designed to meet the United Nation's Strategic Approach to International Chemicals Management, and is an innovative program to improve product stewardship within the chemical industry and with suppliers and customers throughout the supply chain.

Companies engaged in GPS, including NOVA Chemicals, are committed to make relevant product information publicly available. We encourage you to review the significant information about our products that is posted on our webpages, and we welcome your comments.
