Green Chemistry

The Green Industry movement recognizes the need to tackle the challenge of the earth’s resources becoming scarce – as a result of the population boom, the growth of consumerist societies, climate change and diminishing natural capital. Corporations challenge this reality by developing and implementing public policy initiatives that sustain economic growth by way of environmentally responsible investments.Within the chemicals sector, developing green industrial policies and technologies can be found at the top of just about every corporate strategic plan. This is due not simply to the numerous international and domestic environmental protection regulations and treaties, but also because it is good business. With more and more consumers becoming aware of the planet’s fragile condition, and looking to support environmentally friendly companies, corporations have had to shift resources into researching and developing green technologies.In this section, you can read about how chemicals companies are working to achieve the goals of the green industry, by rethinking and redesigning such functions as industrial production processes, waste management, emissions, water consumption and preservation, and product packaging.
