UNEP’s Responsible Production Framework

The United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) acknowledges that the comprehensive

management of chemical hazards is a crucial aspect of any sustainable development strategy. As countries

move towards more responsible industrial systems and face the challenges of a global green economy,

many have enacted measures requiring industries to manage chemicals in a manner that poses less risk

to human health and the environment. National authorities, industrial associations, and technical institutions

have in many cases developed guidelines promoting the sound management of chemicals. However,

many of these guidelines are primarily applicable to larger-scale industries and Small and Medium Sized

Enterprises (SMEs) often find it difficult to deal with too many different approaches and requirements.

UNEP considers that is critical that SMEs develop the capacity to safely manage their chemical hazards.

To set up effective safety management approaches, SMEs must be involved in initiatives that promote

chemical safety management throughout the value chain.

UNEP’s Responsible Production framework is a systematic, continuous improvement approach to

chemical safety along the value-chain. The approach provides technical materials and tools to help

SMEs understand hazards, control chemical exposures, reduce the risk of accidents, promote product

stewardship and engage stakeholders. The tools are meant to offer practical methods for improved risk

planning, management, and communication, with the goal of preventing human or environmental

exposure to hazardous substances.
