FOR EDITING: Draft Goals for ACS to Address the World's Sustainability Challenges through Chemistry

Version 5

    Dear ACS Sustainability Stakeholders,


    I've incorporated edits suggested by a dialogue with the S3G Co-chairs.   Please continue to review and comment.


    This document attempts to target how chemistry, chemists, and ACS might set strategic goals to address the world's sustainability challenges.  This is based upon the CALL to Action ( and discussion by the Sustainability Stakeholders Steering Group (S3G), and represents a working draft.  Once the draft is revised and reviewed, S3G plans to bring it to the Board Committee on Professional & Member Relations for consideration.


    At this point, please mark up and/or comment on the working draft.   This should not be considered as ACS policy yet.
