Archroma, a global leader in color and specialty chemicals towards sustainable solutions, today announced that the company is joining the One Young World global movement and sending its first ever delegates to the Annual Summit which will take place in London, UK, from 22 to 25 October 2019.
Archroma develops color and effect solution systems and innovations that help its customers to create every day products, such as the clothes we wear or the paper we write on every day, everywhere, in the “The Archroma Way: Safe, efficient, enhanced, it’s our nature”. The approach finds its origin in Archroma’s deep belief that it is possible to make its industry sustainable.
The annual One Young World Summit convenes 2000+ bright young leaders from 190+ countries, working to accelerate social impact. At the Summit, delegates are counselled by influential political, business and humanitarian leaders such as Justin Trudeau, Paul Polman and Meghan Markle, amongst many other global figures.
The company selected its first delegation of talents with the objective to provide them with the opportunity to connect with like-minded young leaders who share the same commitment to creating a better world, with more responsible, more effective leadership.
“Archroma is proud and excited to be represented for the first time at the One Young World Summit 2019 by some of our most promising young talents”, comments Archroma's CEO Alexander Wessels. “In line with our goal to make our industry sustainable, it is critical that we develop our own talents into leaders who are aware of the climate change challenges for our planet, and are committed to do something about it. Because it's our nature!”
