The World Chlorine Council (WCC) is a global network representing
the chlorine and chlorinated products industries. It brings together
national and regional trade associations, along with their member
companies. The WCC currently represents over 23 national/regional
associations in over 27 countries accounting for over 80 percent

awareness of the benefits of chlorine chemistry; further the practice
and understanding of responsible stewardship; and anticipate and
respond to relevant health, environmental and public policy issues.
Through stewardship, research and advocacy, WCC works to ensure
that the products and applications of chlorine chemistry continue
to be regarded by policymakers and the public as sustainable and
Chlorine chemistry is essential to manufacturing the thousands
of products and services that
