Title: GCO Pillar II: 1. UNEP Chemicals and Finance Initiative activities 2. Case studies


1
GCO Pillar II 1. UNEP Chemicals and Finance
Initiative activities 2. Case studies
  • Louise Gallagher
  • Consultant (Economics)
  • Chemicals Branch,
  • DTIE, UNEP

2
Overview Supporting the fulfilment of work for
Pillar II Economic Implications of Chemicals
Production, Use and Disposal (RR)
  • Draft Outline Pillar II
  • Overview of Economic Implications of Trends
  • Financial Implications
  • External Cost Implications
  • Case Studies

3
III. Financial Implications UNEP Finance
InitiativeChemicals Collaboration to strengthen
messages and services for both our clients
  • Who are UNEP FI?
  • Drivers for collaboration
  • Finance sector is a key leverage point
  • Chemicals financing discussions
  • Need for deeper understanding of private sector
  • Delivering to UNEP FI membership
  • Objectives
  • Mutual learning
  • Identify high impact areas of collaboration

4
III. Financial Implications Timeline and
outcomes to date for the Chemicals-Finance
collaboration
  • Mar 2011
  • Andrew Dlugolecki
  • Financial piece outline
  • FI Steering Commitee
  • Jan 2011
  • First contact
  • Focal points established

Dec 2010 - UNEP FI requests informal meeting
  • Feb 2011
  • Information exchange
  • Guest speaker
  • April 2011
  • Membership mailing
  • June 2011
  • New focal points
  • Working group proposed
  • May 2011
  • GCO finance work begins

5
III. Financial Implications Elements of
continued collaboration supporting the GCO
  • Extending contact with insurance, banking and
    investment sectors
  • Establish a Working Group on Chemicals
  • Reach out to members of existing groups to
    populate
  • Meeting suggested for September (no concrete
    action on this yet)
  • Review from the finance sector
  • When the timing is right
  • New! Principles for Sustainable Insurance
  • UNEP FI Global Roundtable, Oct 2011
  • The Geneva Association

6
III. Financial Implications ESG (Environment
Social Governance) Risks framework for
Chemicals is going to be an important output
  • ESG Risks is the only language on sustainable
    development in the finance sector context that
    has embedded itself
  • Broader vision of potential chemicals-risks
    impacts on the finance sector
  • COI
  • Value for UNEP FI and its members
  • A guide to future work on chemicals and the
    finance sector

7
IV. External Cost Implications The costs of
inaction results will be central for completing
this section
  • Framing of cost implications
  • Categorization of costs
  • Sizing the problem
  • Literature, figures, case studies
  • Authoritive gaps analysis
  • Reflecting the COI strategy

8
V. Case Studies The main purpose of the
case studies is to draw together the financial
and external cost information in a concrete
discussion
  • GCO Demonstrating possibilities for economic
    framing of chemicals-related trends and use of
    this information in decision-making
  • What choices would we hope to inform?
  • Development paths
  • Investment in sound management of chemicals
  • Aiming for Net Benefits type of discussion
  • COI on gaps/case studies under Module B
  • New (and needed) stand-alone contributions for
    the individual topics

9
V. Case Studies Four topics are PROPOSED as
case studies to complement the work of Pillar I ,
provide information for Pillars II and III
  1. Mercury use in artisanal and small-scale gold
    mining
  2. E-Waste
  3. Industrial chemicals (accidents)
  4. Pesticides (IPM/IVM)

10
Case Study 1 Mercury use in artisanal and
small-scale gold mining reasons for including a
case study on this topic in the GCO (1)
  • Forthcoming Mercury Treaty
  • Elimination, reduction (and management) of
    mercury in gold mining falls in the scope of SMC
    and has a global dimension
  • Captures three issues of particular interest to
    the COI/GCO
  • i) mining and chemicals, ii) metals and iii)
    drivers of economic development with a chemicals
    dimension

11
Case Study 1 Mercury use in artisanal and
small-scale gold mining reasons for including a
case study on this topic in the GCO (2)
  • Captures some interesting aspects i)
    non-chemicals production trends that impact on
    chemicals usage (intensity) ii) illegal use
  • Significant exposure numbers and vulnerabilities
    occupational, local and indirect
  • Informs some key policy choices
  • Initial choice of development paths
  • Minimizing costs (maximizing benefits) from
    existing development choices

12
Case Study 2 e-waste reasons for including a
case study on this topic in the GCO (1)
  • E-waste falls squarely in the scope of
    SMC/global chemicals trends
  • Captures two issues of particular interest to the
    COI/GCO
  • i) sustainable production/green chemistry and ii)
    management of chemicals in products in
    end-of-life phases
  • Significant exposure numbers and vulnerabilities
    occupational, local and indirect

13
Case Study 2 e-waste reasons for including a
case study on this topic in the GCO (2)
  • Emerging discussion that would benefit from
    inclusion in COI/GCO
  • Informs some key policy choices
  • How strictly to regulate electrical and
    electronic equipment production
  • Domestic requirements for e-waste management
  • How strictly to regulate e-waste exports/ imports

14
Case Study 3 Industrial chemicals
(production-accidents) reasons for including a
case study on this topic in the GCO
  • Increasing risk of industrial accidents with
    shift of production falls squarely in the scope
    of SMC/global chemicals trends
  • Cross-cutting links trends, finance
    (insurance), economic implications and policy
  • Exposure and vulnerabilities occupational,
    local and indirect (depending on emissions)
  • Informs some key policy choices
  • Development paths
  • Regulating industrial HS, pollution control ..

15
Case Study 4 Pesticides (IVM/IPM) reasons
for including a case study on this topic in the
GCO
  • Pesticides (IVM/IPM) falls squarely in the
    scope of SMC/Global chemicals trends
  • Highlighted in Pillar I trends Production, use
    and disposal (obsolete pesticides)
  • Significant exposure numbers and vulnerabilities
    occupational, local and indirect
  • Informs some key policy choices
  • Development paths
  • Regulating production, trade, use and disposal

16
