Sustainability cannot be achieved in isolation; it relies upon collective thought and action. That’s why Chinachem annually brings thought leaders together in a forum where ideas can be shared, solutions sought, and change effected.

Our annual Sustainability Conference is a vital rallying point, not just for us, but for our industry. Yes, we compete, but for us to care for the community around us, we must collaborate. Climate change does not respect borders, therefore our responsibilities to the planet are shared.

Moving forward, the Group is curating and creating a program of in person and online events around the diverse topic of sustainability, more details of which can be found on this page.
