CIA collaborates with ITN Productions Industry News for “The Chemical Industry – Our Route to Net Zero” programme | CIA





CIA News

Launching October 2021 – The Chemical Industries Association (CIA) and ITN Productions Industry News will be co-creators of a news-style programme, raising awareness and understanding of how the chemical and pharmaceutical industries are committed to meeting the nation’s net-zero targets.

The chemical industry has a vital role to play in delivering more sustainable solutions for society and contributing to the net-zero targets by 2050.  Not only are chemicals essential components to energy-saving products but cutting emissions and transforming chemical production could have a huge impact globally. A recent survey by the European Commission predicted that the chemical industry could achieve a 36% reduction in annual greenhouse gas emissions by 2050.

Anchored by an ITN Productions presenter, The Chemical Industry – Our Route to Net Zero explores the multi-pronged approach necessary to achieve net-zero ambitions and improve emissions performance with breakthrough technologies, new infrastructure, cleaner sources of energy and R&D playing a crucial role. The programme will explore the latest regulations and policy, will look at examples of best practice within companies reviewing and implementing new strategies and will showcase significant contributions to societal advancements based on world-class chemistry.

The programme will premiere in October 2021 with a secondary screening scheduled for November 2021 at the CIA Annual Dinner and will combine key sector interviews, informative news items and sponsored editorial profiles from leading organisations. The programme will form part of an extensive communications campaign featuring CIA members and professional partners.

Steve Elliott, Chief Executive of the Chemical Industries Association, said:The importance of delivering net zero in the next few decades cannot be overstated. Chemical business owners, management and workforces are united in wanting to achieve this for our country and for the world. Right across the UK, in chemical factories and laboratories, there are some fantastic examples of work well underway in the fight against climate change. Our partnership with ITN Productions will showcase some of the incredible ideas, products and technologies from our industry. The fight against climate change is one that needs to be fought and one that cannot be fought without chemistry and chemicals."

Nina Harrison-Bell, Head of ITN Productions Industry News said: “We are excited to be working with CIA to make a programme that raises awareness of the importance of the chemical industry to individuals, society and the UK’s climate leadership. We hope the programme encourages debate and knowledge sharing amongst leaders within the profession and encourages individuals to consider a career in a sector with such significant global impact.”
