The Value of Green Chemistry

Webinar Description

Over the past ten years, there has been increasing scientific, government, and consumer attention to chemicals of concern in products. Concurrently, there has been a significant growth in green chemistry alternatives to these substances. Despite this growth, green chemistry is still often a marginal consideration in product and process design and in government policy.

In this webinar from the GC3 Green Chemistry Education series, three green chemistry champions—a chemical manufacturer, a pharmaceutical company, and a product manufacturer—discuss their efforts to build awareness and make a case within their firms and to their suppliers and customers for the business value of green chemistry. They discuss challenges and models to build momentum for green chemistry innovation.
