The world is facing unprecedented challenges. The market landscape is evolving with a heightened emphasis on opportunities offered within the sustainability and circular economy framework, as well as the challenges and risks presented by climate change and the need to meet the increased commitments to achieving net-zero emissions without compromising prosperity. 

The need to address climate change, through greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions reduction and energy transition, offer prospects for new solution technologies and innovation across the value chain which required collaboration between technology developers, suppliers, formulators, producers and brand owners.  It also shows the need for resilient systems across the wider ecosystem to enable sustainable future and growth.

Although there is a shift in the market towards science-based practical solutions away from ideology, the landscape is burdened with competing standards and approaches that can be confusing, a symptom of multiple developing industries and a sign of early market. Clear direction on standardised ESG2 measurement and reporting are required as well as waste classification across borders, preferably within a regulated overarching international trade system. 

With climate risk affecting asset valuations, the capital market appetite shifted towards investments with good ESG performance and competitive financial returns raises an opportunity to the petrochemical industry. Companies in our sector can see real valuation benefit when they are able to demonstrate strong performance in these areas. There is also a global focus on supply chain traceability, sourcing transparency, operational efficiency, and smart waste recovery. Helping the supply chains to adapt and introduce greater resilience has become a priority metric.
