Workshop for Arkema
Arkema approached SAN with questions about scaling up an existing sustainability initiative for castor oil in India. In June, SAN lead a workshop for supported Arkema staff to review achievements to date and critique several options for expansion. As the secretariat of a certification scheme, SAN had unique insights to offer Arkema.
There is a huge move towards understanding the sustainability of materials beyond food - industrial chemicals is one industry choosing to explore renewable materials and therefore returns to agriculture to grow its feedstocks.
Connecting with industrial users of feedstocks is an important step for SAN in looking towards agriculture at scale – regardless of the end use of the crop. This workshop helped grow SAN’s network of organisations with whom it can engage with transformation.
