Open Letter from the European Chemical Industry

European chemical industry chiefs back a strong global climate change agreement

Leaders of Cefic, the European chemical industry association, published a signed letter in the Financial Times expressing its firm support for government’s efforts to secure a strong, globally binding climate change agreement at COP21 in Paris.

We also wish to state, once and for all, that our industry does and will continue to, support efforts by European governments and institutions to achieve a competitive, low carbon economy. All we ask is that the word “competitive” is given its due weight, and that the European chemical industry is allowed to remain competitive and, therefore, able to contribute to this process through its innovations.
