The chemical industry is an important engine of wealth creation. Its products are often key to the way in which human society meets its needs and can offer solutions to other sectors of industry in their pursuit of sustainable development, such as the energy and waste disposal sectors. However, the overall public perception of the industry continues to decline. Committing itself to true sustainability offers the industry a number of opportunities, not least to improve the acceptability of its activities by the general public.
