The ISC3 Global Scenario Process
The ISC3 intends to facilitate a scenario process later in 2018, in which experts will have an opportunity to debate how Sustainable Chemistry impacts our future. What kind of chemical products and chemical production processes do we need to shape a sustainable future? What are the societal, economic and political implications of Sustainable Chemistry? In what areas are chemical innovations key to achieving the UN Sustainable Development Goals? What are the pathways towards a sustainable circular economy given the needs of a growing population for food, housing, energy, transport, health and safety? Is new legislation required to make the change happen?
The scenarios are intended as a process, with the aim of delivering generally accepted and expert validated discussion documents. They should provide an opportunity for civil society to voice expectations and concerns, help industry players in the refinement of their strategy and investments, provide input to policy makers in the shaping of regulatory frameworks and instruments, and they should spur further research.
