ICCA and UN Environment Running Joint Projects

Brussels – WEBWIRE

As part of its commitment to SAICM (Strategic Approach to International Chemicals Management), ICCA (the International Council of Chemical Associations) and UN Environment signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to advance sound chemicals management and developing effective chemical management around the world. ICCA, its member associations and member companies are currently engaged in several collaborative projects with UN Environment.

Ongoing projects cover such issues as plastics waste management; Responsible Care; chemicals management; Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs); implementation of the Globally Harmonised System for the Classification and Labelling of Chemicals (GHS) (see above) and Circular Economy, ... These joint projects, through SAICM, will enable ICCA and all relevant stakeholders to contribute to building a stronger foundation for the sound management of chemicals and waste.

With the support of the local associations, ICCA contributes to capacity building workshops aimed at coordinating the work with the stakeholders and sharing expertise using specific case studies.

Studies on knowledge and data sharing, as well as Sustainable Development Goal analysis are also part of ICCA’s close collaboration with UN Environment. And, to quantify the industry’s contributions to SAICM, a comprehensive socioeconomic analysis of the global chemicals industry is being developed.

Lastly, ICCA is actively engaged in the negotiations for the upcoming UNEA-4 (Fourth session of the United Nations Environment Assembly) on the theme “innovative solutions for environmental challenges and sustainable consumption and production”.

ICCA aims to raise awareness in making the world a more sustainable place, helping a growing population make the best use of the world’s scarce resources and accelerating progress towards the Sustainable Development Goals.
