Sustainabilty beyond the buzzword

Feel the Chemistry - Sustainability Challenge

What role can science & innovation play in solving today’s global challenges? Celebrating 80 years of science & innovation, all tenants at Brightlands Chemelot Campus have joined forces to organize a Challenge Trilogy: a special series of three festive events, designed to challenge the campus community to develop a better future.

We guarantee you will feel the chemistry!

Sustainability is on the minds of many. Companies talk about it and consumers want to contribute to it. But how many really do? And are they addressing the issue successfully? Take a look inside three international corporations, located at Brightlands Chemelot Campus, that will share their roadmap to sustainability.

  • What is their vision?
  • What do they think needs to happen to realize a truly sustainable future for our planet and all who inhabit it?
  • And how important is collaboration to achieving this goal?
Feel the Chemistry festival

On October 8th, three campus tenants will share their vision on sustainability in a pitch to be challenged by the audience, including an interactive panel with startups and experts.
