This meeting will seek to analyse recent development of this issue from the point of view of the European Parliament and Commission, and shed light on future possibilities for the European Emission Trade System applied to aviation with contributions from the industry sector and the NGOs world.
sustainable chemistry: supporting research, innovation & competitiveness in europe
Sustainable chemistry has a crucial role to play in achieving the goals of Europe 2020, especially in 3 different flagship initiatives: Innovation Union, Resource-Efficient Europe and Industrial Policy.
Sustainable chemistry is concerned with the development of environmentally benign chemical reactions and products. It develops more efficient chemical processes, technologies and product designs that conserve resources, generate less waste and less hazardous emissions, and deliver a sustainable, cleaner and healthier environment.
The aim of this meeting is to raise awareness on the importance of sustainable chemistry and its ability in responding effectively to society’s challenges and also to show some concrete examples on how chemistry can provide sustainable solutions to global changes.
