On 14 October, the European Commission adopted the Chemical Strategy for Sustainability (CSS). Cefic, to which Petrochemicals Europe belongs welcomed the new compliance, enforcement and innovation proposals in the CSS, which are much-needed in Europe. However, the strategy is a missed opportunity for a strategy to accelerate how Europe’s fourth largest industry can deliver on the Green Deal, as a growth strategy, while reinforcing EU global leadership on chemical regulations.

For more information, please read the CSS and Cefic’s press release on it.
