      Green Chemistry Institute International Chapter Affiliates

      The 24 Green Chemistry Institute international chapters are at various stages of development. The number of green chemistry-related affiliations and programs increases with the number of years since chapter inception. All reporting international chapters have participated in green chemistry education (e.g., hosting events, publishing materials, or increasing their own knowledge of green chemistry). Over 30 green chemistry education programs were reported. There are 33 green chemistry educational materials available in association with the international chapters, yet every chapter reporting a critical need cited educational materials and training opportunities.
