It was 17 years ago when we launched the Green Chemistry and Commerce Council and so much has changed since then. Through our annual roundtables, ongoing open discussions, and collaborative innovation activities, what began as a small community attracted new members across sectors and throughout the value chain. This momentum and excitement showed us that the need to connect, network, and learn from each other was important to companies, so we kept going.  We realized that the power of convening the value chain to collaborate and solve problems—not endlessly debate them—was a powerful motivator for change. 

The name Change Chemistry better reflects the urgent need to accelerate the growth of green and sustainable chemistry solutions across sectors and the value chain to solve some of our most pressing global challenges.  We recognize that we will not address our current planetary crises without a supply of high-performing, safer, and more sustainable solutions that are widely available in the marketplace. Building on our successes, we aim to undertake concrete projects and actions to better reach key decision makers in industry, government, and the investment community that can accelerate the transition to safe and sustainable chemistry. We will also bring our value chain and solutions-focused approach to Europe to provide a positive and proactive voice that can help shape the implementation of European Green Deal policies.  This holistic approach will be necessary to make green solutions mainstream around the globe.

In June we will host our last event under the GC3 banner—our Green Chemistry & Commerce Council European Innovators Forum. Hosted by Covestro in Leverkusen, Germany on June 13-15,

The Forum will gather stakeholders from across the value chain and other sectors to discuss how supply chain collaboration and partnership can help accelerate green and sustainable chemistry’s growth and implementation. The agenda is packed with keynote speakers, informative panel sessions, breakout discussions, and quality networking time with peers. Featured discussions relevant to the European Green Deal include Safe and Sustainable by Design Criteria and the Industrial Transition Pathway. Our Forums are excellent opportunities for learning, building understanding, and strategizing.

Space is very limited, so please register now!

Thank you to our generous sponsors Covestro, Reckitt, Merck Life Science, Neste, and 3E.
