Climate and Sustainable Finance - Specialty chemicals: Enablers of sustainable development

We live in chemophobic times: The media and general public view chemicals as enemies of the environment. But this perspective is flawed because it overlooks the essential role of chemicals - particularly specialty chemicals - as enablers of sustainable development.

Produced responsibly - as the vast majority of chemicals are - specialty chemicals and polymers support key sustainable development goals, including clean water, clean energy, and the preservation of life below water. They enable society to satisfy its current needs without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own requirements.
