The European chemical industry commits to help make the UN Sustainable Development Goals a reality

The European Chemical Industry Council (Cefic) launched its ChemistryCan Sustainability Report. It shows how the chemical industry is contributing to a more prosperous and sustainable Europe by: i) driving resource efficiency across global value chains and in their own operations; ii) promoting adoption of circular economy principles; iii) creating solutions for the low-carbon economy; iv) caring for people and the environment throughout the entire life cycle.

Thierry Vanlancker, CEO, AkzoNobel and chair of the Cefic Programme Council Sustainability said: “As a solution provider and supplier to virtually all sectors of the economy, the chemical industry is a key player in making the transition to a low-carbon economy, reducing our society’s dependence on natural resources, preventing waste and promoting the safe use of chemicals downstream the supply chain”.
