The Austrian Federal Ministry for Climate Action, in co-operation with the Environment Agency Austria, organises the International Conference “A Green Chemical Deal” on 22nd/23rd September 2022 in Vienna. The conference will start on Thursday at 2 p.m. (CET) and end on Friday afternoon.
The conference addresses three major goals of the EU chemicals policy under the Green Deal, specified by the European Commission in the communication on the Chemicals Strategy for Sustainability (CSS).
- zero pollution ambition
- achievement of circularity
- transformation to green and sustainable by design
The conference will provide an overview of the current status of the implementation of the CSS and develop long-term visions for the coherent integration of the above mentioned three goals in the framework of European chemicals policy.
The conference is free of charge, but requires a registration, as the number of participants is limited. Participants will be invited to an evening event (dinner buffet and museum visit) on 22nd September at 7:30 p.m. in a Viennese art museum, which is located in a distance of 20 minutes´ walk from the meeting venue.
