Mapping a path to safer, sustainable chemicals

This two-day summit is aimed at key stakeholders in the chemicals management sector who are interested in making substantial progress in managing chemicals at a global level, especially in addressing roadblocks to the goal of minimising the negative human health and environmental impacts of chemicals. It aims to highlight best practice in chemicals management and give examples of green chemistry.

Day one will focus on what support developing and emerging economies need for managing chemicals; what are the best regulations when compared internationally? What are the best ways of creating impact at a transnational and even global level?

Day two will shine a light on best practice in chemicals management and give examples of green chemistry, particularly involving downstream companies that are trying to tackle hazardous chemicals throughout their products’ lifecycles.
