This webinar, hosted jointly by ChemSec and ChemFORWARD, featuring Apple’s Environmental Technologies Smarter Chemistry Lead Art Fong, aims at arming you and your organization with the best tools and methods available in the fight against harmful chemicals.
Five EU Member States have started gathering evidence for a broad PFAS ban. But they need help from companies, and ChemSec can show you how to provide it.
As the movement grows, we thought it would be interesting to ask the companies about the biggest challenges connected to moving away from PFAS.
During this webinar, you can expect to receive an overview of the implications of the Cosmetics Directive revision and what they mean for your business, as well as what you can do to avoid facing negative consequences of revised legislation and ensure that your business is compliant.
The make-over project of removing PFAS from the cosmetics industry still has a long way to go. But test studies and legal tightening on this issue around the world makes us believe in a bright, glowing future.
Chemical recycling is a golden opportunity to meet the future demand of recycled materials. It also provides ample opportunity for making a lot of money. This combination makes it tempting for companies to take shortcuts in order to satisfy the market, often resulting in values like sustainability and transparency being thrown out the window.
We believe that recycling, including chemical recycling, is necessary for the further development of a viable circular economy. However, the chemical recycling technologies employed must support circularity – not only in theory, but also in practice.
The circular economy forces us to focus on the hazardous properties of chemicals. To neglect this and instead talk about the risk of exposure is close to absurd. Surprisingly, some parts of the chemical industry still do this. It’s time for a change of mind.
The Chemicals Strategy gives clear direction on how the transition towards safe and sustainable chemicals should be achieved. Many European companies are already well on their way towards sustainability, fully in line with the Commission’s Chemicals Strategy. A fully realised and implemented Chemicals Strategy will greatly support their work and ambitions for this ongoing transition.
