While the global pandemic and the recent emergence of the Omicron COVID-19 variant are exerting continued pressure on the global economy, results around the industry continue to be overwhelmingly positive – notwithstanding ongoing disruptions from supply chain issues, which are impacting most producers.

This edition of Reaction Magazine we introduce a new series which focuses on diversity in the industry – something that needs much greater focus in the coming years across all aspects of diversity. In each forthcoming edition, we’ll be interviewing a senior leader in the industry about what can be done to improve diversity.

Additionally, we cover two of the hottest topics in the industry right now: climate change and deals activity. Our global chemicals and performance technologies M&A team reviews the ongoing wave of deal activity in the industry and considers what strategists can do to be successful on both the buy and sell side in one of the hottest deal markets in living memory. We also look back at COP26 and how the industry is going to be relied on more than ever before if organizations are going to reach the climate goals that will limit global warming to a manageable level.
