The future of the European Green Deal: Impact of the crisis and the EU chemicals strategy on the chemical industry
With the European Green Deal, the EU Commission aims to achieve climate neutrality for Europe by 2050 and a sustainability-oriented restructuring of the economic system.

The chemical industry in particular has a key role to play in this transformation.
