Global businesses (and regulators) 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 like 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 vision that chemicals safety is integral to sustainable development and that quality risk management is critical to corporate success. Speakers will examine the global drivers, investment, people, and chemistry needed to build truly sustainable value chains.
Day three of the Summit offers an optional choice of industry-focused conferences which will take a closer look at chemicals management in the electronics, food contact and retail sectors.
