Climate action programme for the chemical industry – CAPCI

As of: September 2021

Although the chemical industry is responsible for a high carbon footprint, it also has great potential to contribute to greenhouse gas mitigation. The project strengthens the competencies of key actors for climate protection in the chemical industry in selected developing and emerging countries. This will open up climate protection potential in chemical production and the associated value chains. To this end, the project cooperates with environmental ministries and chemical industry associations in selected partner countries as well as with German and international experts. The conceptual approach includes a step-by-step approach with information and dialogue workshops, targeted provision and transfer of knowledge and good practices, and training. The target groups of these measures are the chemical industry as well as political decision-makers and stakeholders in their environment.

State of implementation/results

  • Start of an online workshop on the topic of "The Nexus Chemistry - Climate Change: Understanding Trends, Risks and Opportunities" in September 2021. The workshop aims to further knowledge and knowledge exchange in the nexus of chemistry/the chemical industry and climate change.
