Cefic launches a Future Chemistry Network to help accelerate chemical innovations
Imagine a future where resources are circular and no new waste is produced, sustainability is at the core of business models, emissions are at net zero, and there is zero harm to human health and the environment. If we wish to reach this future by 2050, and meet the ambitions of the EU Green Deal, it is vital to speed up creation of the right conditions for this future to become reality.
Cefic has taken the initiative to launch a multi-stakeholder platform for supporters of sustainable chemistry to raise awareness and help promote stronger opportunities for sustainable chemistry in the EU – we want more of these solutions to be homegrown here on European soil! A key aim of the network is to accelerate investments in chemical innovations which are safe and sustainable-by-design.
Chemistry can and has been investing in research and innovations to help reduce emissions within the industry and beyond, to conserve natural resources, to design recyclable and re-usable products, all the while trying to maintain the comfortable lifestyle we are used to. But the chemical industry cannot move forward alone. Policymakers, industry, NGOs, academia, scientists, researchers, thought leaders and other stakeholders committed to further the interests of sustainable chemistry in Europe are invited to join.
