In our cover feature this quarter we take an in-depth look at the chemical sector and its difficult path to decarbonisation. Like steel, which we explored in our Q2 2021 Public Engagement Report, the chemical sector is considered a hard-to-abate industry. US engager Joanne Beatty guides us through some of the challenges and explains how the sector can play a key role in the low carbon transition.
