Latin America has some of the most serious environmental challenges in the world, yet remains one of the most concerned regions when it comes to climate change and sustainability issues. From the alarming rate of deforestation and soil erosion, to tremendous air pollution issues in some of the largest cities. There are rivers flowing through industrial centers which contaminates water through industrial along with a water shortage in places like Brazil impacting not only the environment but the economy. This session will explore how the region’s environment impacts the social and developmental challenges of the Latin American region, and how the industry is responding to those challenges.
Latin America is one of the most concerned regions when it comes to climate change and sustainability issues. The current and future global impact of climate change consistently cite Latin America as being one of the most vulnerable regions. This session will provide an update regarding the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (or STG’s) as Chile leads the way as one of the most ambitious countries to address key sustainability issues. Moving to a wider role than previous focus on the CE100 Brasil network, now leading the Ellen MacArthur Foundation Brasil work to accelerate the transition to a circular economy in the region. The Ellen MacArthur Foundation works with businesses, governments and academia to build a framework for an economy that is restorative and regenerative by design.
Scott Tuchinsky | Global Sales Director - Home Care & Water Treatment of Croda
Sustainability is integral to everything we do. From the raw materials we source and the way we use them, to the ingredients we create, we believe in being a responsible company. Our sustainable fabric protection ingredients are no different. Once fabric softeners were simply a vehicle to deliver fragrance and anti-static properties to garments however, consumers are now demanding new performance attributes from these products. With the correct performance additive, sustainable fabric protection leading to clothes that look and feel better for longer periods of time is now available. Our novel biopolymer that is substantive to fibres, delivers total fabric protection giving longer lasting benefits to garments. Limiting the damage from the washing and drying process, our protein-based technology delivers colour protection, reduced greying of whites and fibre protection to keep garments looking newer for longer. Not only this, but with increased recognition of embedded carbon in Home Care supply chains, we are able to review and provide the intrinsic and extrinsic sustainability benefits of our products which are becoming increasingly important for consumers.
Gonzalo Muñoz Abogabir | CEO of TriCiclos
If we accept that the living world’s cyclical model works, can we change our way of thinking so that we too can operate a circular economy? How can our waste build capital rather than reduce it? By rethinking products and components, and the packaging they come with. There’s a world of opportunity to rethink and redesign the way we make stuff. Explore how through a change in perspective we can re-design the way our economy works from designing products that can be re-used in some way again, powering the system with renewable energy. Together, we can innovate to create a restorative economy.
Rafael Juen | Head of Technical Center South America of Alpla
ALPLA’s commitment to environmental protection and integrated objectives is weaved into their company philosophy.

Ray Fahmy | Global Head of Hygiene & Preservation of Lonza
At home as a parent you work very hard to protect your family’s health, but you may be inviting unwanted “guests” to the dinner table in the form of bacteria and viruses. Away from home, a restaurant may look clean, but in reality under that veneer lies bacteria and viruses. All purpose cleaning products and dish towels do not eliminate bacteria and viruses, and may actually be making the situation worse. So surfaces my look germ free but in reality it’s just an illusion on clean.
