Learn the chemical building blocks of developing sustainable products

Over two days, expert speakers will explore how business can benefit from a sustainable product strategy. The building blocks for a sustainable product strategy start with responsible sourcing and supply chain transparency. This then leads on to circular economies , including compliance with laws in chemicals in products that are being made circular. Designing for sustainability is the next building block to be considered and this includes trends for ‘Safe by Design’ in the US and EU.  The final building block to be covered in this conference is sustainable packaging. 

All the conference sessions will be presented by leading experts from government, industry and consultancies. The topics will be covered in presentations, expert-led panel sessions and moderated Q&A sessions. 

Key topics will include: 

  • key trends and drivers shaping corporate approaches to responsible sourcing programmes; 
  • optimising and scaling chemistries across industries to achieve a safe circular economy; 
  • complying with laws in chemicals in products that are being made circular/links between sustainable chemistry and compliance; and   
  • embedding principles of green chemistry into the US commercialisation process.
