Overview

In association with the legal firm Mayer Brown Akademie Fresenius is bringing to you a brand-new series on the EU's fast-evolving Chemicals Strategy for Sustainability.  

The Series aims at highlighting and discussing the impact the CSS will have on different regulatory areas. It is addressed to the chemical industry and its downstream industries, as they find themselves in an increasingly demanding situation with the impending implementation of the CSS. Together with various stakeholders, we want to work towards practical solutions and envisage practical scenarios. The focus shall be on the central questions: How can Industry cope with the upcoming changes, what are possible scenarios and which coping mechanisms are at hand or need to be developed?
