The Global Chemical Leasing Award

The Global Chemical Leasing Award was created and organized by UNIDO and partners in 2010, 2012, 2014, 2018 and 2021. The award aims to acknowledge best practices in Chemical Leasing implementation, science and promotion activities, and to enhance the visibility of Chemical Leasing worldwide.

 

It is the first award of its kind and recognizes successful activities in different categories.

Based on the importance of sustainable chemicals management and green chemistry, it was decided to extend the scope of the Chemical Leasing Award. For the Chemical Leasing Award 2024, other business models (such as eco-industrial parks) for sustainable chemical management, besides Chemical Leasing, are now eligible for the award.

Introduction and Background

The migration to a service-based economy is leading to a fundamental shift in manufacturing industries toward business models in which the service component of products is becoming dominant based on the value they provide to customers.

The main interest of chemical users is not to buy and possess chemicals products. They are interested in the best solutions for their process or application. Therefore, chemical users are paying attention on the utility of chemicals and are attracted by services that support their businesses. This strict service orientation leads to a new logic that puts the utility provided by a chemical into the centre of the buying process.

Following this shift, chemicals suppliers need to change a way of doing business and offer sophisticated solutions that will support their customers’ chemical operations and profitability.

Performance based business model (also called “performance-based contracting”) responds to this demand: the customer pays for the utility of the product and not for its quantity or volume. The model is based on aligning customer and supplier incentives.

Chemical Leasing is a performance-based business model applied to chemicals operations. This model is a perfect example of a business solution for sustainable chemical management.

Performance based business models related to chemicals can be called and branded in companies differently, not just as Chemical Leasing even if being identical or similar to this model.
