With the Chemicals Strategy for Sustainability launched by the European Commission in 2020, its version of a green chemicals policy for the future finds multiple actions now under preparation. Which regulatory tools has the EU chosen to protect citizens, workers and the environment better from the effects of harmful chemicals while stimulating innovation across the industry? Will it become more difficult to export chemicals to Europe when the new rules will be in place?Will these rules comply with WTO standards? Does Europe expect other parts of the world to follow their ambition? What will be the role of the new chemicals strategy under “the EU Green Deal” and is the European chemicals industry expected to contribute much more to climate neutrality than its participation in the emission trading system and how will that be achieved? How do other world regions like Asia plan to achieve a high standard on chemical safety and waste management at the same time as circular economy and climate neutrality targets?

Helsinki Chemicals Forum

The Helsinki Chemicals Forum (HCF) is an independent non-profit forum founded by the Finnish Fair Foundation and the City of Helsinki aimed at promoting chemicals safety and chemicals management globally. HCF has held annual high-level conferences in Helsinki every year since 2009, supported by European Chemicals Agency (ECHA), the European Commission (EC) and the European Chemical Industry Council (CEFIC) and a number of Finnish Government ministries. Over the years, the Helsinki Chemicals Forum has gradually evolved from debating the multiple challenges that the global chemical industry is facing to becoming the priority platform for debating how approximation of regulatory systems around the globe and multilateral cooperation can contribute to a safer and greener environment worldwide.
