Chemical industry: procurement is the most effective way to achieve carbon neutrality

October 14, 2019 FR EcoVadis FR

These are the key findings of the current trend study on procurement in the German chemical industry published by consulting specialist CAMELOT Management Consultants. Around 200 managers from large and medium-sized chemical companies in Germany were interviewed about current developments in chemicals procurement for the study. The chemical industry in Germany has clearly committed itself to the task of achieving carbon neutrality by 2050, but the implementation of new production technologies is almost impossible without financial support, as provided by the Federal Government’s “National Decarbonization Program”. “This makes it all the more important for chemical companies to find their way to carbon neutrality in other areas of the value chain as well. Procurement plays a decisive role here,” says Dr. Josef Packowski, Managing Partner at CAMELOT, about the study results.
