Sustainability Metrics for the Chemical Industry
In February 2018, the American Chemistry Council’s (ACC) Board of Directors approved an implementation plan for sustainability which included work in three strategic areas to achieve the commitments set forth in its Sustainability Principles. Included in this plan is an initiative to identify industry-endorsed sustainability metrics. This effort is viewed as a fundamental starting point for ACC’s sustainability effort overall, as the metrics create a foundation for other strategic initiatives such as development of a circular economy strategy, reducing the industry’s environmental footprint, and financial sector engagement. Join this session to learn about how this initiative is progressing and which metrics are under consideration.
