Palmer Holland earns NACD Responsible Distribution verification

Palmer Holland, a specialty chemical distributor based in Cleveland, Ohio, U.S.A., confirmed its successful completion of the National Association of Chemical Distributors (NACD) Responsible Distribution verification. 

NACD’s Responsible Distribution is a mandatory program, verified by third parties, focusing on environmental, health, safety, security, and sustainability standards. It enables members to showcase their commitment to enhancing performance across all phases of chemical storage, transportation, handling, and disposal.

This achievement underscores the firm’s dedication to ensuring the health, safety, and environmental well-being of its workforce and surrounding communities.

Eric R. Byer, NACD president and CEO, emphasised the program’s significance. “Responsible Distribution is vital for our industry, ensuring the safe delivery of over 30 million tons of products annually.” He added that Palmer Holland’s successful verification highlights its commitment to the responsible management and handling of chemicals, supporting essential U.S. sectors such as agriculture, healthcare, and manufacturing.

The program mandates facility verifications based on guiding principles. These include strict compliance with laws and regulations and collaboration in developing responsible practices to protect communities, workplaces, and the environment. Adherence to Responsible Distribution offers numerous benefits, including reduced incidents, improved policy documentation, enhanced community communication, and increased credibility.

Jenna Hayes, chief compliance officer at Palmer Holland, remarked, “Our unwavering commitment to Responsible Distribution mirrors our aim to deliver unparalleled service.” She further noted that their NACD membership positions Palmer Holland as a top-tier distribution partner.
