Be part of the chemicals management of the future

***UPDATE: This event is now taking place as a virtual conference on 9/10 September***

Businesses and regulators around the world are asking for more information and insights on how chemicals management relates to sustainable development and the circular economy. 

Following a decade of unprecedented regulatory reform, driven by global frameworks such as Saicm and GHS, companies are still facing huge concerns about the adverse effects of chemicals on human health and the environment – driven, not least, by plastics pollution. The UN’s 2030 Sustainable Development Goals provide new impetus for the sound management of chemicals and waste. 

The Global Business Summit brings together leading figures to provide their perspectives on why chemicals safety is integral to sustainable development and quality risk management is critical to corporate success. Speakers will examine the importance of the European Commission’s Green Deal and other drivers for companies’ increasingly ambitious sustainable chemicals management strategies. We will explore the growing impact of the circular economy by delving in turn into the sourcing of materials, manufacturing and production processes, the flow of communication around chemicals and the growing importance and impact of recycling and waste.

Speakers include representatives from government organisations, trade associations, industry, service providers and NGOs.

Each session will offer opportunities for asking questions and frequent panel discussions will allow the presenters to discuss emerging issues and respond to each others’ perspectives directly.

You’ll also have the chance to network virtually with other attendees, and interact with the event through question and answer sessions, polls, chat rooms and forums.
