Building a sustainable future requires us to break new ground. Chemical production processes are still too intensive in terms of fossil energy and CO2 emissions. But chemicals are the building blocks for just about everything we use from mobile phones to shower gel. They are also vital for the new technologies we will need to achieve net zero, from EV batteries to hydrogen electrolysers.
It has been over 5 years since the Paris Agreement when 196 countries committed to reducing their emissions and working together to adapt to the impacts of climate change. The goal is to keep the rise in global average temperature to well below 2°C and hopefully limit this increase to just 1.5 °C.
But what action are we taking to achieve this, and who is paving the way?
