Abstract

The coronavirus pandemic reminds us that it is time to create a better, truly sustainable world.

New approaches are needed to tackle global challenges such as climate change, resource limitation and population growth. Above all, consumption and production must move away from one-time use: the future belongs to the circular economy.

The plastics industry makes indispensable contributions to this. And Covestro, one of the world’s largest polymer companies, wants to be a pioneer in this.

In an interactive live webcast, our CEO Dr. Markus Steilemann will explain the role that Covestro and the chemical industry are playing in the transformation to a circular economy.

Among the speakers are renowned experts such as Professor Volker Sick, Director Global CO2 Initiative, and Jacob Duer, President and CEO of the Alliance to End Plastic Waste.

We cordially invite you to follow the webcast live and ask questions yourself in real time – on 26 May 2020, from 11.00 a.m. to 12.30 p.m. CEST!

You will receive further information on the exact procedure after your registration.
