The fifth Global Chemical Leasing Award ceremony will be held on 15 September 2021 from 15:00 to 14:45, CEST (Austria, UTC+2). This year’s live event will be organized in a hybrid format: it will be combined with online features and live streaming to the global audience.
The first Global Chemical Leasing Award was organized in 2010, and was followed by ceremonies in 2012, 2014 and 2018. The award acknowledges international best practices related to Chemical Leasing, a new circular business model in which the suppliers sell the function/performance of the chemicals instead of quantities, to the benefit of efficiency and sustainability.
A new circular business model
