Conference: Sustainability beyond Compliance in Chemicals

organized by Jacob Fleming Group
date: 20-21 September 2007
venue: Barcelona, Spain

With sustainability a growing concern, chemical companies face increasing pressures to be environmentally and socially responsible, while growing the business. Their response has been to implement the triple bottom line:

  • Environmental Stewardship
  • Contributing to society and communities
  • Creating economic value
  • As a result, the chemical industry became more sustainable, but its image improved very little. What is the bottom line for the chemical industry today? How can public perceptions be changed? Is there an opportunity to put sustainability at the centre of the business as the ultimate goal?
    This upcoming international event will bring together chemical industry leaders. Join them to hear what they are doing to create a more effective strategy and culture for sustainable development among stakeholders. This is a unique opportunity for executives to share and discuss best practices, case studies, success stories and future trends.
