Sustainability is a major driver of innovation in the modern world and creating 'green' businesses that are better able to endure and shield their customers from the effects of climate change are a perfect example of the "Glasgow's Looking Forward" theme of Glasgow Science Festival 2023.

These issues are particularly important in chemistry and chemistry-related industries, which are increasingly focused on the development of new materials, technologies, and processes that enable climate resilience, and to improve existing operations in line with this. We will discuss this with academics, entrepreneurs/industry professionals, and science communicators, to provide a local insight into how climate change is being tackled by a cross-section of researchers.

The event is part of Glasgow Science Festival 2023 and the SCI Scotland group will chair the panel. There will be plenty of time for discussion and Q&A. Coffee and biscuits will be served to allow for networking/further discussion.

Introductions will be given by by Esther Richter (Biomedical Engineering, University of Glasgow) on behalf of the Society of Chemical Industry. The event will be chaired by Professor Justin Hargreaves (Head of the School of Chemistry, University of Glasgow).
