Nils Simon is a Senior Advisor in global governance. He deals with international sustainability policy and chemicals and waste governance. Nils develops proposals for the further development of international institutions, accompanies negotiation processes at the United Nations and has helped initiate the debate on a binding plastic convention.
“Chemicals might be the most underestimated problem area on the international sustainability agenda. They are only gradually coming into focus as the third major challenge alongside the climate and biodiversity crises. Through my work at adelphi, I can help make chemicals more prominent as a topic and develop solutions – be it for binding international agreements or voluntary multi-actor platforms.”
