Chemical Industries Association (CIA) and ITN Productions have recently launched a Solutions for our Future current affairs-style programme, which reports on the contribution made by the chemical industry to the UK economy. Introduced by national newsreader, Natasha Kaplinsky, Solutions for our Future takes a look at companies within the chemical industry that drive change, improve standards and innovate within the UK chemical industry.
In an interview, Steve Elliott, Chief Executive, CIA, explains the Association’s commitment to its member companies, who are addressing global issues, recruiting talent and providing the economic backbone that drives the UK economy, as well as revealing his hopes for the chemical industry beyond Brexit.

Our film showcases strong examples of chemical companies and their workforces, alongside organisations that we work with, that are providing answers to the great challenges we all face.”
