Will the EU’s transition pathways provide industry the roadmaps to achieve chemicals, green and industrial objectives?

Achieving Europe’s environmental ambitions under the Green Deal requires a fundamental change in how industry operates. The EU has developed specific sector roadmaps of how industry can adapt. Called transition pathways, these roadmaps set out specific areas that need to be considered including infrastructure, investment, regulation, skills and education, research and innovation and competitiveness.

Economic turbulence, growing environmental crises and geopolitical struggles have made the transition more important but also increasingly challenging. The pathway for the chemicals sector aims to establish resilience and global competitiveness, while at the same time ensuring that business activities are helping the bloc meet objectives under its green and industrial strategies. This includes the chemicals strategy for sustainability, which has brought a swathe of new actions to regulate the most harmful chemicals.

A panel at this year’s Helsinki Chemicals Forum will delve into how the transition pathways provide blueprints for how industrial sectors can achieve these objectives, as well as the challenges faced.

Can the EU’s transition pathway have the desired effect and set the path forward for a more sustainable, resilient and competitive chemicals industry?

Join us on 10-11 April 2024 at the Helsinki Chemicals Forum for Panel 5: Are Transition Pathways for Sustainability demonstrating how industrial sectors can achieve both the EU’s chemicals and industrial strategies? Moderated by Leigh Stringer, Managing Editor Europe, Chemical Watch News & Insight, Enhesa

By joining the Helsinki Chemicals Forum you will hear Sylvie Lemoine, Deputy Director General, Cefic, Simon Cook, Chemicals Management Advisor, Eurometaux, Sonja Haider, Senior Business and Investors Advisor, Chemsec and Kristin Schreiber, Director, DG GROW, European Commission provide their perspectives on this topic.
