Our contribution to the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals
Sustainable manufacturing is one of the engineering grand challenges of the 21st century. With the rapid globalization of science, chemists, materials scientists, and chemical engineers are synergistically working together worldwide to understand how to manipulate matter for the benefit of humankind. The Sustainable Development Goals set by the United Nations provide a blueprint through which a thriving and more sustainable future can be achieved for all. These goals address the global challenges we face, and most of them are directly affected by chemical manufacturing. Consequently, it is our responsibility to design, manufacture and recycle chemicals, and develop processes, considering sustainability .
