The 57th Annual Meeting of EPCA will focus on the theme of "Collaboration for Impact" with a particular emphasis on energy security, affordability, and sustainability. The event will explore the sustainability of future investments in the petrochemical industry as well as its long-term success in Europe given the impact of high energy and raw material costs and increasing regulations. Keynote speeches will cover topics such as the environmental and social role of the petrochemical industry and sustainable businesses both present and future. Additionally, there will be discussions regarding how collaborative initiatives within the industry can enable high policy ambition to be effectively implemented.
Our ample networking and business opportunities will provide knowledge and insights on how sector-specific collaborations can mitigate social and environmental risks in complex supply chains. Participants will also be discussing how to make the most out of data and technological solutions.
Attendees at the event will have the chance to engage in learning, networking, and sharing their best practices for managing responsible businesses and sustainable supply chains.
Collaborative efforts from diverse actors are critical to driving positive impact, and this event will serve as a platform to showcase the various dynamics and facets of the ecosystem.

Sustainability practices at #EPCA57
We aim to organize the 57th Annual Meeting of EPCA as green event according to the Austrian Eco-label guideline for Green Meetings & Green Events.
Climate change is not a myth and natural resources are finite. Responsible consumption and production are at the core of the UN’s SDG 12. At EPCA we want to contribute to a clean future by choosing whenever possible sustainable and green venues, suppliers and products. SDG 12 goes hand in hand with SDG 13, which is a call to take immediate action to combat climate change and its impact. As we know that the Annual Meeting has a significant impact on the environment, this is also where we can make the biggest difference. Here’s what we do to support this goal:
Avoid unnecessary use and distribution of paper collaterals
Materials and waste: Whether printed or digital, all communication has an impact. The collateral produced for an event is an important contributor to its environmental footprint. The flyers, banners and other needed communications have an impact that depends on their volumes, materials used, finish and format. Furthermore, promotional material, in various forms by company members and different publications, that were frequently distributed at EPCA's Annual Meeting. This has an environmental footprint in its production phase and contributed to the event’s waste, since a big portion (80%+) of this was discarded at former EPCA events.
Offsetting our carbon footprint
EPCA plants trees in partnership with activities in the destination or by supporting WeForest to offset the carbon footprint of our activities. WeForest restores threatened forests and landscapes in tropical regions and biodiversity hotspots. Their focus is the well-being of the communities where they work.
Efforts related to the venue and F&B
Reducing food waste, water and energy consumption; encouraging the recycling of materials post-event.
Stimulate the EPCA community to take action
We ask our attendees, partners and sponsors to make conscious choices when it comes to transport, travel, collaterals, food, water and electricity consumption.
