How will chemists in the future incorporate social and economic considerations to bridge their green chemistry from just environmentally minded to sustainable?

As sustainability (a holistic picture of what's necessary) collects social, economic, and environmental considerations, what can chemists do to make sure their chemistry is useful, and affordable?

 

Similarly, how we can reimagine the principles of green chemistry to incorporate these ideas?

 

I can imagine it will involve collaboration and interdisciplinary research, but am wondering what y'all think.
