58th Annual Meeting

- | Berlin
#EPCA58 | 7-10 October 2024 | Berlin, Germany

    The 58th Annual Meeting of EPCA will be held in Berlin, Germany from 7th to 10th October 2024.







    The 58th Annual Meeting of EPCA will focus on the theme of "The Power of Action".

    The best way to navigate uncertainty is to predict the future by creating it. But don't go it alone.

    The chemical industry is the mother of all industries, and we've come a long way. Greenhouse gas emissions in Europe have fallen by about a third over the past three decades. But there's still so much more to do! Today, we must navigate the geopolitical landscape, obtain clean energy and sustainable feedstock at the right cost and scale, and we need an industrial policy in Europe where competitiveness and meritocracy are the common denominators.

    Finding the right balance between Security, Affordability and Sustainability is an urgent challenge! Collaboration among diverse actors is necessary to make a positive impact on the ground. 

    The 58th Annual Meeting of EPCA will showcase the dynamics and different facets of this complex ecosystem. It is essential to take all these facets into account if we are to meet our global energy needs responsibly and ensure we thrive in the future.



    EPCA's Annual Meeting theme " The Power of Action " aims to create a dialogue between all stakeholders to explore crucial topics for the petrochemical sector. The program has a diverse range of topics and renowned speakers lined up for each day.

    Sustainability practices at #EPCA58

    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.
