Chemical industry wants to be green...really?

I am finally able to post this recently released sustainable chemical industry survey from ICIS (the company I work for) and green chemistry company Genomatica. An article about it was published from ICIS Chemical Business last week.

For those who haven't checked it out yet (as I've been tweeting about it the past week or so), the survey found that 57% of chemical industry respondents believe their companies should reduce exposure to the petroleum-based commodity market. The same majority reported their customers were already inquiring about the availability of sustainably produced chemicals.
"It is clear that all of the stakeholders in our industry, including executives, employees, and most importantly the customers, are demanding sustainably produced chemicals to play a major role in the industry going forward," said Christophe Schilling, chief executive officer of Genomatica.
