The mission of the Chlorine Institute is to promote the continuous improvement of operational safety, security practices and emergency response within the chlor-alkali industry and the customers of our products by promoting voluntary initiatives and sound regulatory programs where prudent. Chlorine Institute members are committed to adopting CI’s safety and stewardship initiatives, including pamphlets, checklists, and incident sharing, that will assist members in achieving measurable improvement.
At the core of its chlorine stewardship program is the Member Safety and Security Commitment. All Chlorine Institute member companies that produce, distribute or use chlorine annually certify that they will meet this commitment.
Member safety and stewardship is a critical part of the CI mission. Chlorine and other chemicals derived from chlorine are essential to our way of life and the economy. Chlorine chemistry is used to provide safe drinking water, produce more than 90 percent of pharmaceuticals, and even develop alternative energy sources including solar energy.
Chlorine is needed everywhere but is produced in few places. That’s why CI is committed to ensuring the safe distribution of chlorine to prevent accidents from occurring. We are also committed to ensuring emergency responders are prepared in the event of an incident.
