The chemical industry is not only an extremely important pillar of modern life and the global economy, but also, it is also a key player for tackling climate change. On the one hand, the chemical and petrochemical industries account for around 10% of the world´s final energy demand and 7.4% of the global greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) (IPCC 2022). On the other hand, it has also big potentials for providing climate-friendly solutions to other sectors.
The Climate Action Programme for the Chemical Industry (CAPCI), launched in early 2021 and financed by the Federal Ministry for the Environment (BMUV) within the framework of the International Climate Initiative (IKI), aims to support selected developing countries with information and capacity building on the nexus chemistry – climate change.

After 3 years of implementing international activities and intense cooperation with selected partner, CAPCI in cooperation with its partner institution organizes a webinar to discuss the main findings, results and lessons learnt of the implementation of CAPCI with the focus on the presentation of partner country activities, including demand-oriented trainings, stakeholder dialogues and roadmaps towards emission reduction in the chemical sector considering that realistic transformation pathways towards sustainable and climate-friendly chemical production are needed for tackling the triple crisis, including particularly the interlinkages between pollution prevention and climate protection which is a substantial contribution for achieving the 2030 Agenda and the Sustainable Development Goals.
