The Role of Policy in Green Chemistry Research and Adoption

Webinar Description

Corporate and public policies play an important role in driving green chemistry innovation and adoption. Policies that range from research and development, education, tax and investment incentives to purchasing preferences and regulations at the state, federal, and international levels can all impact demand for and supply of green chemistry alternatives. Corporate sustainability and innovation policies, often motivated by external factors, can drive investment and build a culture of product stewardship within the firm.

It is important that material designers, chemists, and business managers within firms understand the role of policy in accelerating green chemistry. This webinar will provide an overview of the range of policies that can affect chemical design and product development and adoption and outline how policy affects research and developing at a major chemical manufacturer.
