The Chemistry Council Supply Chains Working Group includes senior representatives from the industry (multinational and SME), heads of cluster organisations and Government institutions (Center for Process Innovation, Innovate UK, Department for International Trade).

The group has been led by BASF’s UK Country Head, Richard Carter.

The sector takes both synthetic and natural raw materials and processes them into a wide range of intermediate and finished products. These products are consumed by companies in the chemistry sector and supply and customer industries, as shown in Figure 10 below, showing we are the industry for industries.

Strength and innovation in the supply chains are important to delivering the UK’s Industrial Strategy. The Chemistry Council Supply Chains Working Group is focused on delivering programmes within two core themes:

  • Securing and Strengthening Existing Supply Chains
  • Building New Innovative Supply Chains
