Project Donor: SECO through UNIDO

Project Partners: ISSPPRO

Project Duration (Start and End Date): 2015-2016

Target Sectors: Chemical Industries Sector

Project Objectives:

The objective of this approach is to support manufacturers and industrial users of chemicals in using innovation to improve their sustainable management of chemicals while simultaneously improving business performance. This means, identifying sustainability hotspots and innovating ways to achieve the following across the life cycle:

- Improving overall business productivity and generating value for customers

- Improving resource productivity (chemicals, water, energy, other materials)

- Reducing pollution intensity, especially chemical waste

- Improving health and safety of society and the environment by reducing risk of accidents and preventing exposure to chemicals with adverse acute or chronic impacts

- Eliminating hazardous chemicals/processes or substituting them with safer and economically feasible ones

- Substituting chemicals based on non-renewable resources with those based on renewable resources

Improved business performance is achieved by identifying the unmet needs of direct customers and end markets in the context of the chemical-related sustainability hotspots. The company can use the unmet needs in the value chain to address sustainability concerns and increase business performance through targeted innovations.
