Helen Kean

Regional Director Sustainable Chemistry, EMEA & APAC

Helen is a Regional Director within Anthesis, leading on Sustainable Chemistry within EMEA and Asia-Pacific. Her team supports clients in chemical compliance, strategy development and improving ways to manage chemicals of concern in products, processes, supply chains and data valuation.

Helen manages REACH consortia providing regulatory and technical guidance and supports individual clients in meeting their REACH obligations either directly or through the company’s provision as an Only Representative. Increasingly, this work is engaging with the Downstream User community, leading to Helen’s involvement in a number of projects which feature supply-chain dynamics at their core.

She joined Anthesis after 16 years with a multinational mining company initially working in research and development before moving into Product Stewardship and Regulatory Affairs. Her deep understanding of both the business needs and regulatory environment enables her to play a pivotal role in developing and implementing clients’ strategic plans.
