Three Ukrainian companies became the Fourth Global Chemical Leasing Award winners

On 6 November 2018 the fourth Global Chemical Leasing Award Ceremony took place in Vienna, Austria as a part of the Green Chemistry Conference 2018.

Chemical Leasing is a service-orientated circular economy business model that can effectively address the different sustainability dimensions of chemical use. It aims to simultaneously create financial, environmental and human well-being. Chemical Leasing is also considered part of Green Chemistry and the basis of the model is the idea that economic success no longer depends on the volume of chemicals sold, but on the service that is linked with the chemicals. The business partners and the environment shall benefit from the co-creation of jointly developed resource-efficient and innovative solutions and fair profit-sharing as well as reducing the risks of chemicals and protecting human health.
