GC3 Reports Provide Workable Plan for Widespread Adoption of Green Chemistry

Sustainable chemistry practices are being touted by the GC3 – the U.S.-based Green Chemistry and Commerce Council. The GC3 has released a series of published reports detailing analysis, research and case studies of the merits of adopting green chemistry.

The GC3 reports are divided up into 4 reports, two of which have already been published. One such report was published in April and it makes the case for the adoption of sustainable chemistry practices. The other report details how to facilitate the adoption of green chemistry was released in the third week of June 2015.

The final two reports will be released throughout the course of 2015. The third report will be focused on how much progress and development is being achieved, vis-à-vis the movement towards green chemistry. The other report will be exclusively focused on how to take sustainable chemistry practices mainstream.

In May 2015, a report was released by the EDF (Environmental Defense Fund) titled: Behind the Label: How Business Sees Opportunity in Safer Chemistry. The report took into account two major innovative chemistries which used safe chemical ingredients in the general household and other products. The cleaning products were produced by Seventh Generation and AkzosNoble..

Accelerated Pace of Green Chemistry Needed

Monica Becker, the co-director of the GC3, acceded that sustainable chemistry is an important issue in academia and industry – but she cited the importance of speeding up its adoption throughout the world. Owing to the substantial benefits to the economy, the environment and public health, green chemistry needs to go mainstream.

The rationale for generating the reports was to get insights and updates from retailers, chemical companies and brands about how to facilitate the adoption of sustainable chemistry practices in the global economy. By focusing on specific elements of green chemistry, it is hoped that these reports will inculcate key industry players and their communities as to the merits of green chemistry.

Since the reports have been largely business-focused, they highlight all the potential possibilities and pitfalls of green chemistry. The reports can lead to conversations about the chemical industry’s structure and working together among key industry players. The 4 reports combined will allow for the advancement of sustainable chemical industry practices.

    Here’s hoping that research on Green chemistry gets more funding!

  2. Sweets says:

    I am still confused on exactly what green chemistry is. This video does not go into detail about exactly what new ingredients will be added and how they will be beneficial. Another question I have is exactly what is in the old products that would cause manufacturers to change the chemicals in their products?

  3. Mannit says:

    Green Chemistry is really amazing innovation in the world. It’s very important for world. I wish this research will be sucessfull implement soon in the world and people will get its benefit.

  4. Jay says:

    What is green chemistry? Is it using sustainable products? Recycling reagents?

  5. Beautiful Stranger says:

    Green chemistry needs to be explored in more depth as there are obviously huge benefits if there is further funding. I believe that it would become more well known if the positives significantly outweighed the current system.

  6. Lena says:

    I hope more people become aware of green chemistry! It seems to be a very good idea, especially considering the planet’s condition has been going downhill for decades now. We need all the sustainable, eco-friendly options we can get!

  7. Will Dobson says:

    Green chemistry seems to be a very innovative and exciting prospect for the whole world, and although it comes across as very complex, it can help everyone. The huge number of benefits clearly outweigh any negatives due to the fact that green chemistry can be thoroughly explored in depth and used to our advantage. I really do wish it could receive more funding in the coming years as it seems so interesting and a path that has to be used. Although, the video could given more of an explanation on the subject as it would help more people understand this growing prospect and help us achieve much more in the future in this field. Brilliant stuff.

    I have to admit, I was quite unaware of this. Interesting post and very informative. I found this info interesting, stumbling upon something I didn’t know much about. It does come across complex, simple, though, once understood, and definitely an important topic. Need to spread more information.

  9. Johnny says:

    i think awareness for green energy needs to be spread. very informative thanks

  10. Laura Jenkins says:

    i think very helpful information .I hope more people become aware of green chemistry.thanks admin

  11. Richard Harris says:

    Green energy is vital in this day and age. More people need to take this route.

  12. tylir williams says:

    I’ve always been a fan of keeping our environment clean and this goes so far into to detail for the people that need to know about this. thanks

  13. Jabari Khamisi Williams says:

    Green energy is definitely the future and a must for the world to continue on.

  14. Elleah Derksen says:

    Our world is overloaded with toxic chemicals. I love to hear about the progression of green chemistry!

  15. Rapunzel342 says:

    Really interesting piece. It’s clear that some businesses find the cost of green chemistry prohibitive, but hopefully as consumer awareness of the benefits increases, it will be in companies’ best financial interest to implement it more.
