The ISC3 connects relevant stakeholders from all sectors enabling them to promote sustainable chemistry easier and faster. Several workstreams will be initiated over the next years inviting all interested parties to join. The workstreams will address topics related to the SDGs as well as crosscutting issues such as: Sustainable Chemistry & Climate Change; Sustainable Chemistry & Building and Living; Sustainable Chemistry & Mobility as well as Circular Economy & Digitalization (Chemistry 4.0) and many more.
The first workstream will highlight “Sustainable Building and Living with Focus on Plastics”. The workstream will run for about one year and will also influence the work of the ISC3 Innovation Hub and Research & Education Hub. In order to prepare a collaborative working process, a pre-study with a thematic screening and strategic recommendations is currently conducted by the ISC3 to explore the challenges and opportunities in this field. Based on the pre-study the ISC3 will initiate a dialogue process to engage with stakeholders from different sectors and develop recommendations on the sustainable management of plastics in buildings and living as well as on potential fields for sustainable chemistry innovation related to this topic. To continuously monitor and support the dialogue process as well as to ensure high-quality results an expert group will be installed. Led by the ISC3, the expert group will incorporate and reflect the different interests and expectations of stakeholders from the private and public sectors as well as from academia and the civil society.
More information on the first collaborative workstream of the ISC3 “Sustainable Building and Living with Focus on Plastics” will be available soon.
