Chemicals makers are increasingly applying sustainability in production and the supply chain, according to a survey by ICIS and Genomatica. Fifty-four percent of those surveyed have a policy on sustainability, and 71% regard energy and waste management as a very important facet of sustainability. "The survey shows that sustainability -- and the use of renewables-based chemicals -- is part of the mainstream of thinking and action for both chemical producers and chemical users," said Genomatica CEO Christophe Schilling.
