The Chemical Industries Association has partnered with ITN Productions to launch ‘Solutions for our Future,’ a news and current affairs-style programme reporting on the importance of the multi-billion pound chemical industry and the significant impact the sector has on our day to day lives, economic progress, UK operations and the future for the next generation.
The application of chemistry is central to our existence, what we eat, what we wear, our transport, the technology we use, how we treat illnesses and how we get electricity and its pioneering innovations are making our lives safer and healthier. Presented by national newsreader Natasha Kaplinsky, ‘Solutions for our Future’ invites commentary from those at the forefront of breakthroughs to discuss the far-reaching applications of the chemical industry on future global issues such as sustainable energy, food production, managing our environment and promoting human and environmental health.
Underlining the importance of investment in innovation, trade and research, ‘Solutions for our Future’ also showcases significant developments in best practice, innovation, research, industry safety, careers and education and highlights the important role The Chemical Industries Association plays in supporting the success of the sector in the UK.
In an interview, Stephen Elliott, Chief Executive, CIA, explains the Association’s commitment to its member companies, who are addressing global issues, recruiting talent and providing the economic backbone that drives the UK economy, as well as revealing his hopes for the chemical industry beyond Brexit.
Stephen Elliot, Chief Executive, CIA said: “Solutions for our Future shows real, on the ground examples of how our sector is working to deliver benefits for all of society. Our film showcases strong examples of chemical companies and their workforces, alongside organisations that we work with that are providing answers to the great challenges we all face.”
Elizabeth Fisher-Robins, Head of Industry News, ITN Productions said: “We are delighted to partner with the Chemical Industries Association to create Solutions for our Future. We are pleased to help raise awareness of the vital role of the chemical industry and the vibrancy and relevancy of the critical work being done in this field. We hope Solutions for our Future will provide a platform on which to engage the wider community on the pertinent issues faced.”
