Responding to the need for a regional presence with a global involvement, Gulf Petrochemicals and Chemicals Association (GPCA) was established in March 2006 to coordinate the work of petrochemical and chemical companies on issues and programs of regional and international interests. GPCA’s membership comprises of companies, involved in all aspects of the chemical and petrochemical industry, which employs a substantial high percentage of knowledge scientists, engineers and workers than any other industry. In this regard, GPCA tackles multiple of today’s most complicated issues from breakthroughs in fertilizers and plastics to finding new sources of energy to improve our cities, cars and homes.

GPCA adopted Responsible Care Initiative in December 2009 and since then has been working to implement it in the six GCC Countries and the Middle East region.
