PCIC works with the American Chemistry Council (ACC) and communicates with its counterparts in other states, allowing our members to have multiple facilities to effectively coordinate their state government relations efforts. PCIC also works in coalition with other trade associations in Harrisburg, including the Pennsylvania Manufacturers Association and Pennsylvania Chamber of Business and Industry.
American Chemistry Council
The American Chemistry Council’s (ACC’s) mission is to deliver business value through exceptional advocacy using best-in-class member performance, political engagement, communications and scientific research. We are committed to sustainable development by fostering progress in our economy, environment and society.
ACC is America’s oldest trade association of its kind, representing companies engaged in the business of chemistry — an innovative, $770 billion enterprise that is helping solve the biggest challenges facing our nation and the world.
The products of chemistry will make it possible to satisfy a growing world population by providing a healthy and plentiful food supply, clean air and water, safe living conditions, efficient and affordable energy sources and lifesaving medical treatments in communities around the globe.
To enable these ongoing innovations, ACC supports public policies that will drive the creation of groundbreaking products that improve lives and our environment, enhance the economic vitality of communities and protect public health.
Chemistry Creates, America Competes
Chemistry is essential to modern life and the economic and environmental health of our nation. From supply chain, climate, and sustainability challenges to energy efficiency, power delivery, national security, and infrastructure needs, our nation depends on the products and innovations made by America’s chemical industry.
Chemistry enables affordable housing, reliable infrastructure, and effective, modern healthcare technologies. It is the driving force behind everyday products like smartphones and computers. And it is essential to transformative products like electrical vehicles and solar panels which are driving the future.
Chemical manufacturing is responsible for more than $600 billion in economic impact in the United States, providing good-paying jobs to over half a million Americans and supporting 25% of our GDP.
For chemical manufacturers, the situation must change. Together, we can address these flawed restrictions. Without appropriate oversight and the use of sound science to drive regulation, critical chemistries have the potential to suffer, along with the innovations and jobs that rely on them.
Chemistry Creates, America Competes is an initiative of the American Chemistry Council to call on the Biden Administration, Federal agencies, and Congress, to support frameworks that celebrate innovation and accelerate progress.
