Commitment to the protection of human health, safety and the environment is a top priority at NOVA Chemicals. This commitment is not only grounded in our communities’, customers’ and employees’ rightful expectations – we are a strong proponent of the idea that clean, safe, vigilant practices are essential to business excellence. If we use all our resources – natural and human – wisely and efficiently, we will thrive and prosper. Not just today, but for the long run.
Responsible Care® principles were developed by the chemical industry to ensure the safest possible management of chemical products throughout their entire life cycle. Like other Responsible Care companies, our environmental management systems are regularly reviewed, rated and improved.

The health and safety of our employees and the community is among our top priorities. NOVA Chemicals is prepared for unexpected, industry-related emergencies both within and outside our sites.
The Emergency Medical Response Protocol is an award-winning NOVA Chemicals plan that details the necessary response and care measures taken by trained NOVA Chemicals’ personnel and community medical, police and paramedical services should the need ever arise.
