CLEARWATER BEACH, Fla.—Plastics and chemicals firms are looking for ways to be sustainable while growing their businesses.
"Everyone wants to achieve sustainability goals and lower emissions," David Yankovitz said March 1 at the Plastics News Executive Forum in Clearwater Beach. "They're trying to figure out what part of the ecosystem they can control and what they can do to act on it."
Yankovitz is a principal and U.S. chemicals market leader with consulting firm Deloitte Consulting L.L.P. He was joined at the event by Deloitte specialist executive Robert Kumpf.
"Chemicals are on the pathway to decarbonize and reduce dependence on fossil fuels," Yankovitz said. "They're critical to build a sustainable economy and reduce carbon while fueling growth."
