In October 2020, the European Commission released its Chemicals Strategy for Sustainability. This strategy focusses on protecting citizens and the environment and stimulating innovation for safe and sustainable chemicals. The European Commission draws connections with the equally ambitious European Green Deal, a major recalibration of how we, as a society, will deal with materials in the future. The overall aim is to work towards zero pollution and zero waste. But how realistic are the European Commission’s plans, and most importantly: what will they mean in practice? In a series of blog posts, various experts from Royal HaskoningDHV mull the potential effects of the Chemicals Strategy.

OUR CONTRIBUTION

From our perspective of ‘Enhancing society together’ and our extensive knowledge of and experience with chemicals management, sustainability and circularity in a wide range of sectors, we are looking forward to provide a valuable contribution in the implementation of this ambitious strategy. We will provide our own interpretation to the various aspects of the strategy by exploring and commenting on them in a series of blogs.
