Sustainable chemistry on Commission HQ

Yesterday (2 February) a 'mega banner' promoting sustainable chemistry was unveiled on the European Commission's headquarters, the Berlaymont building, in Brussels.

The 40 metre tall banner celebrates International Year of Chemistry with the message 'Chemistry innovating for a sustainable future'.

The banner coincides with an important conference for the High Level Group on the Competitiveness of the Chemical Industry (HLG) that takes place in Brussels on 10 February.

The conference will take stock of the current situation for the European chemicals industry and present examples of actions undertaken to implement the recommendations of the HLG report published in early 2009 with particular emphasis on innovation and human resources.
