The International Fragrance Association has given a cautious welcome to the publication of a new EU Chemicals Strategy for Sustainability (CSS), signaling its willingness to contribute to plans that support environmental protection and innovation and that are based on sound science.
As the voice of fragrance manufacturers and suppliers, IFRA is committed to consumer safety and to sustainable development across their many dimensions by continuously looking to create truly sustainable and innovative solutions.
IFRA has also joined a cross-industry call to the European Commission not to overhaul the European Union's chemical rules.
A letter to Commission President Ursula von der Leyen, coordinated by the European Chemical Industry Council (CEFIC) and co-signed by IFRA and 17 other industry associations, says that the development of the Chemical Strategy for Sustainability should not lead to a root-and-branch rethink of the EU's REACH chemicals legislation.
The IFRA Europe Week, 'A sense of heritage, a sense of the future', scheduled for June 2020, has been postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Week, which will feature an exhibition, along with debates and social events, is provisionally rescheduled for June 2021.
Further details will follow soon.

The letter outlines the opportunities that digitalization can bring to the European Union's citizens and businesses and calls for further action and leadership from the European Commission to make Europe fit for the digital age.
