Sector Importance for Sustainable Finance:

Chemicals comprise possibly over 5% of global emissions and is a hard to abate sector.

Chemicals is a key base material that are in almost everything we use and is heavily reliant on fossil fuels as a feedstock in the production.

The industry is very diverse and there are lots of constraints on implementing various solutions.

Talking Points:

  • Can bio-stock be good feedstock for chemicals?
  • How do we remove fossil fuels from the feedstock and “cracking” process?
  • What are alternatives to chemicals?
  • What are the best transition pathways and are these cost effective?
