An infographic is also attached with background on UNEP’s work on green and sustainable chemistry.  

UNEP will organize a workshop on strategic planning and action to advance green and sustainable chemistry in which experts and stakeholders will share relevant experiences and identify lessons learned via a guided panel discussion and audience exchange. The examples and case studies gathered will be used to develop UNEP resources and tools that aim to inspire and guide stakeholders in planning and implementing strategic action which advance UNEP’s Ten Objectives and Guiding Considerations for Green and Sustainable Chemistry.The overall goal of the workshop is to foster strategic action by diverse stakeholders relevant for achieving the vision for green and sustainable chemistry. Specific objectives include:• Gather illustrative examples of planning relevant to strategic action for green and sustainable chemistry• Gain insight on key process steps of planning for green and sustainable chemistry strategic action from a range of stakeholder groups.• Hear perspectives on the most useful format to present the case studies to maximize uptake.• Align a set of proposed steps for planning strategic green and sustainable chemistry action with real-world case studiesIn response to UNEA resolution 4/8 adopted at UNEA-4 in 2019, UNEP is preparing manuals on green and sustainable chemistry. The Green and Sustainable Chemistry: Framework Manual, released in 2020 is available online with a specialized manual on green and sustainable chemistry education in the final stages of development. At the center of the Framework Manual and UNEP’s work on the topic are ten objectives and guiding considerations for green and sustainable chemistry. Ranging from green molecular design to ensuring that chemistry works to address societal needs, the objectives seek to inspire and guide relevant stakeholders to shift their chemistry innovations towards sustainability.At UNEA-5.2 in 2022, member states recognized the Framework Manual and “encouraged its use as appropriate” within UNEA Resolution 5/7 concerning the sound management of chemicals and waste. A key aspect of both Manuals with regards to implementation can be found in their respective final chapters in which calls are made for stakeholders to take strategic action and initiate the development of green and sustainable chemistry roadmaps. Building upon this call and the UNEA-5.2 resolution, UNEP is aiming to support stakeholders planning for strategic green and sustainable chemistry action.Confirmed PanelistsAhmad Ansari and Peter Gregory, ZDHC Foundation – Formulation to Zero ProgrammeLesley Onyon, World Health Organization - WHO Chemicals RoadmapBharat Jain - Gujarat Cleaner Production Centre, IndiaWorkshop Agenda1.

The 2nd series focuses on sustainable pathways to greenhouse gas mitigation and practical solutions, while highlighting the great potential of the chemical industry as a provider of innovative products and technologies for combating climate change, through circular economy concepts, synergies related with “Verbund”-structures in chemical parks or power-to-X technologies.The focus is on capacity building and sharing of knowledge and information sharing with partners from public and private sector, thereby contributing to the transfer of technologies and best practices.

More on CAPCI

Background

The chemical industry and its products constitute not only a fundamental cornerstone of modern life as well as global and national economies. The sector also accounts for about 10% of the world´s final energy demand and up to 8% of global greenhouse gas emissions (1). At the same time, the chemical sector is a source of innovations and new materials that are crucial for the deployment of future-oriented low-carbon technologies. In this sense the branch is already developing scenarios for radical GHG mitigation and even complete defossilization.On behalf of the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Nuclear Safety and Consumer Protection (BMUV) and under the International Climate Initiative (IKI), the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) implements the Climate Action Programme for the Chemical Industry (CAPCI) that aims to enable key actors in selected developing countries and emerging economies to identify and tap mitigation potentials in chemical production and associated value chains. The webinar series is organized by CAPCI in cooperation with the International Council of Chemical Associations (ICCA)(2) and the Capacity Building Network of the United Nations Climate Secretariat (PCCB-Network) (3).

About CAPCI

The CAPCI project (Climate Action Programme for the Chemical Industry) is mainly focused on information, capacity building and knowledge sharing for the mitigation of GHG in the chemical industry in developing countries and emerging economies. At the same time, these measures will be planned and executed with an action-oriented perspective. Networking as well as the exchange of practical experiences and best practices play a decisive role.

Project Outcome:

The capacities of key actors from the private and public sector in selected developing countries and emerging economies for designing and implementing effective measures for climate protection in the chemical sector are enhanced.

Project Activities:The work packages and activities of CAPCI are assigned to three outputs:

-Knowledge, Information & Best Practices
-Training & Capacity Building
-Initiation of measures in partner countries

The conceptual approach involves information, webinars, dialogues, workshops and targeted trainings for know-how transfer and dissemination of good practices in the chemical industry. In addition, targeted advice will be provided for supporting the successful design of effective climate protection measures in the chemical industry.

Partners and StakeholdersCAPCI is cooperating with partners like ministries responsible for climate protection, chemical policies and industrial development as well as the associations of the chemical industry in selected developing countries and emerging economies. In addition to the above-mentioned partnership with the ICCA und the UNFCCC Secretariat’s capacity building network, the project draws from the experiences of relevant international projects and initiatives. CAPCI is closely linked with the ISC3 - International Sustainable Chemistry Collaborative Center (see: www.isc3.org). The mission of the ISC3 is to shape the transformation of the chemical sector towards sustainable chemistry, thereby contributing to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG’s) and to a circular economy. Tackling climate change is a crucial area for a sustainable chemistry; hence CAPCI directly contributes to the ISC3 mission.Replicable best practices and know-how will be disseminated in close cooperation with relevant international organisations and cooperation projects that are also supported in the framework of the IKI, e.g. PROKLIMA (www.giz.de/proklima), the International PtX Hub (https://ptx-hub.org) or the Nitric Acid Climate Action Group NACAG (www.nitricacidaction.org). Project measures like information, dialogue workshops and trainings are designed in close cooperation and according to the needs of partners in selected partner countries – as a prerequisite for enhancing capacities and anchoring know-how in a sustainable manner.

Building on the results from the 1st webinar series on the “nexus chemistry – climate change” in 2021, CAPCI organizes a 2nd webinar series in 2022, consisting of 3 sessions and targeted at a wide range of professionals from the public and private sectors along the entire value chain of production and use of chemicals.
The 2nd series focuses on sustainable pathways to greenhouse gas mitigation and practical solutions, while highlighting the great potential of the chemical industry as a provider of innovative products and technologies for combating climate change, through circular economy concepts, synergies related with “Verbund”-structures in chemical parks or power-to-X technologies.The focus is on capacity building and sharing of knowledge and information sharing with partners from public and private sector, thereby contributing to the transfer of technologies and best practices.

More on CAPCI

Background

The chemical industry and its products constitute not only a fundamental cornerstone of modern life as well as global and national economies. The sector also accounts for about 10% of the world´s final energy demand and up to 8% of global greenhouse gas emissions (1). At the same time, the chemical sector is a source of innovations and new materials that are crucial for the deployment of future-oriented low-carbon technologies. In this sense the branch is already developing scenarios for radical GHG mitigation and even complete defossilization.On behalf of the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Nuclear Safety and Consumer Protection (BMUV) and under the International Climate Initiative (IKI), the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) implements the Climate Action Programme for the Chemical Industry (CAPCI) that aims to enable key actors in selected developing countries and emerging economies to identify and tap mitigation potentials in chemical production and associated value chains. The webinar series is organized by CAPCI in cooperation with the International Council of Chemical Associations (ICCA)(2) and the Capacity Building Network of the United Nations Climate Secretariat (PCCB-Network) (3).

About CAPCI

The CAPCI project (Climate Action Programme for the Chemical Industry) is mainly focused on information, capacity building and knowledge sharing for the mitigation of GHG in the chemical industry in developing countries and emerging economies. At the same time, these measures will be planned and executed with an action-oriented perspective. Networking as well as the exchange of practical experiences and best practices play a decisive role.

Project Outcome:

The capacities of key actors from the private and public sector in selected developing countries and emerging economies for designing and implementing effective measures for climate protection in the chemical sector are enhanced.

Project Activities:The work packages and activities of CAPCI are assigned to three outputs:

-Knowledge, Information & Best Practices
-Training & Capacity Building
-Initiation of measures in partner countries

The conceptual approach involves information, webinars, dialogues, workshops and targeted trainings for know-how transfer and dissemination of good practices in the chemical industry. In addition, targeted advice will be provided for supporting the successful design of effective climate protection measures in the chemical industry.

Partners and StakeholdersCAPCI is cooperating with partners like ministries responsible for climate protection, chemical policies and industrial development as well as the associations of the chemical industry in selected developing countries and emerging economies. In addition to the above-mentioned partnership with the ICCA und the UNFCCC Secretariat’s capacity building network, the project draws from the experiences of relevant international projects and initiatives. CAPCI is closely linked with the ISC3 - International Sustainable Chemistry Collaborative Center (see: www.isc3.org). The mission of the ISC3 is to shape the transformation of the chemical sector towards sustainable chemistry, thereby contributing to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG’s) and to a circular economy. Tackling climate change is a crucial area for a sustainable chemistry; hence CAPCI directly contributes to the ISC3 mission.Replicable best practices and know-how will be disseminated in close cooperation with relevant international organisations and cooperation projects that are also supported in the framework of the IKI, e.g. PROKLIMA (www.giz.de/proklima), the International PtX Hub (https://ptx-hub.org) or the Nitric Acid Climate Action Group NACAG (www.nitricacidaction.org). Project measures like information, dialogue workshops and trainings are designed in close cooperation and according to the needs of partners in selected partner countries – as a prerequisite for enhancing capacities and anchoring know-how in a sustainable manner.
