ACS: Working to Provide a Sustainable Future


As chemists and stewards of the earth, it is our duty to aid in identifying solutions to challenges the world faces. Goal 3 of the ACS Strategic Plan, “ACS will be a global leader in enlisting the world’s scientific professionals to address, through chemistry, the challenges facing our world” was developed because ACS realizes that the challenges are great and we are dedicated to achieving a sustainable future.



The Sustainability Stakeholders Group was created earlier this year on the ACS Network at ( to help guide the Society’s initiatives in the area of sustainability. ACS has made a major commitment to the issue of sustainability and welcomes all who are interested to join the online group. 



Student members are encouraged to participate in the ongoing discussions. Feel free to ask questions, post ideas, and offer suggestions via the online group. Working together, we can achieve the Society’s vision of “Improving people’s lives through the transforming power of chemistry.”
