The products and services of the chemicals industry are contained in everyday products that we all take for granted without ever making the link with chemicals or the chemical industry. From medicines, food and clothing through to housing and transport, communications and leisure activities - the world that we live in just wouldn’t be possible without the chemicals industry.

Chemicals Northwest works to promote the benefits of our industry to all and to improve the way that the industry is widely perceived by addressing the following key issues:
  • Low interest in science at schools.
  • Perception of a ‘sunset industry’ career.
  • Enhanced public environmental awareness allied to a lack of understanding of the industry and its role regarding everyday products of the chemicals industry.
