Sustainable Chemistry Week, 11-15 May 2020
The chemicals and chemicals-related sectors play a crucial role in today’s world. Chemical products contribute to our modern living standards and are an increasingly important aspect of the world economy. Thus, chemistry is an important leverage to establish sustainable development by implementing ecological principles - in both developing and industrialized countries.
Collaborate to transform
The Sustainable Chemistry Week will link politics, business, science, and civil society to accelerate the transformation of the chemicals sector towards sustainability. As a leading global platform, the event brings together all key actors to boost networking and the exchange of knowledge and experience. For one week from 11-15 May 2020, discussions, workshops, pitches, and exhibitions will shed light on all aspects of Sustainable Chemistry and create an industry-policy-science interface with an international, intersectoral, and intergenerational scope.
The Sustainable Chemistry Week links the political-strategic debate with case studies and solutions from practice, and thus, co-creates new ideas and outside-the-box thinking across all sectors. Sustainable chemistry innovation is a key transformation driver for sustainable development and plays a crucial role in achieving the Sustainable Development Goals outlined in the United Nations 2030 Agenda. The Sustainable Chemistry Week starts to take advantage of this potential.
