Experts at Chemical Industry Digest argue that while the chemical industry is adopting environmentally friendly practices, true sustainability (and thus a secure future for the chemical industry) will only be achieved when businessowners and operators, scholars and other stakeholders embrace sustainability wholeheartedly and incorporate its principles into their business and teachings.
This embrace of sustainability requires a transformational shift in mindsets and attitudes from top management to virtually all employees and stakeholders in the chemical industry, including those involved in the entire manufacturing value chain—from suppliers to the end users.
If this shift occurs, it will drive innovation in chemistry and open up new vistas in business opportunities.
The Shift to Embracing Sustainability is Happening
