This extensive set of legislation and policies that will be developed and implemented in the next years will drastically impact the coatings industry. Sjoerd Dijkstra, member of High Level Roundtable for the Chemical Strategy for Sustainability, will share his perspective on the impact the coatings industry will face, where are the challenges but foremost also what opportunities the EU Green Deal will give to the sustainable frontrunners in our industry.
