Sustainable development and the circular economy in the world of chemicals management

***UPDATE: This event is now taking place on 30 September-1 October in Brussels (previously 25-26 March, Amsterdam)***

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 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 sustainability on companies’ chemicals management strategies and 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.

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.
