It has been a challenging year to say the least, and the ICIS Top 40 Power Players, the senior executives making the most positive impact on their companies and the industry, have had their hands full in dealing with the pandemic while implementing long-term strategies that keep their companies on the right track. Our editorial team presents a global, diverse set of leaders and some of their key accomplishments. Clearly there is a greater focus on ESG (environmental, social and governance) in the industry which is impacting strategy and decision-making. This year, we include several leaders of smaller companies focusing on plastics recycling along with CEOs of major companies seeking workable sustainability solutions for the long run. Join us in celebrating their success in today’s extraordinarily challenging times.
