    | Brochure ICCA | Greenhouse gas emission reductions enabled by products from the chemical industry

    31 October 2017

    The chemical industry plays an essential role in enabling other industries to improve their energy efficiency and reduce their greenhouse gas emissions (GHG). This is achieved by using chemical products and technologies. Several ICCA reports have underpinned the scale of the chemical industry’s contribution to enabling emissions reduction, also known as “avoided emissions”. “Innovation for Greenhouse Gas Reductions: A life cycle quantification of carbon abatement solutions enabled by the chemical industry” (2009) and “ICCA Building Technology Roadmap: The Chemical Industry’s Contribution to Energy and Greenhouse Gas Savings in Residential and Commercial Construction” (2013) are the most relevant examples
