The concepts of sustainability have been gaining momentum as a primary strategic business practice, taking into account social, environmental and economic drivers as company’s adopt new performance objectives across markets. The trend directly impacts the adhesive and sealant sector – upstream and downstream, and it is becoming critically important to have a fundamental understanding of the concepts and metrics used to assess sustainability measures – especially as we balance performance with social and ecological drivers.
This two day short course was developed with the adhesive and sealant community in mind, and will provide a holistic understanding of sustainability from cradle to grave, highlighting the role chemistry and processing can play in meeting the supply chain’s various definitions of sustainability. Course materials and discussions will provide the knowledge and tools to promote sustainability measures of existing products, while also providing opportunities to consider innovations required to meet new demands.
This course is ideal for business and technical professionals who want to understand the sustainability landscape within the adhesives and sealants supply chain, and who want to develop insights into strategies that position their companies as competitive in sustainable materials and practices. It is also ideal for sustainability innovation professionals responsible for setting strategic goals and metrics.
