Press Release

Today, the chemical industry - the UK’s biggest manufacturing exporter and one of its largest energy users - has set out the key measures and decisive actions it believes are needed to successfully play its part in combating climate change.

The UK has rightly made a commitment to net zero by 2050 - one which our sector has already publicly stated its willingness and capability to support - but if we are to successfully meet that target, the industry’s key carbon-reducing solutions must be matched by a supportive policy framework and related investment in infrastructure.

Our new publication - 'Accelerating Britain's Net Zero Economy' -  viewed below, shows how we can best tackle these challenges in a truly sustainable way.

The fight against climate change is one that needs to be fought and one that cannot be fought without chemistry and chemicals.
