RSB invites you to a panel discussion where we will explore solutions for the ongoing sustainable transformation of the chemicals & polymers sector.

As we look optimistically towards 2030 and work to build a better future, it is clear that it is time to look beyond ‘business as usual’ and take concrete steps towards restoration, sustainability and real positive impacts on climate, society and the environment. 

To help advance this vitally important mission, RSB is pleased to invite you to join a one-hour webinar and hear from a panel of business experts in the chemicals and polymers sector and learn about how they are uncovering solutions to the challenges faced in building truly sustainable solutions and a low carbon economy.
