Dialogue process: Developing a common understanding of sustainable chemistry
Developing a common understanding: Dialogue Process 2019 - 2020
The ongoing international debate on sustainable chemistry shows that the expectations towards sustainable chemistry differ between the stakeholder groups. As an international collaborative centre, the ISC3 has therefore initiated a dialogue process to develop a common understanding.
The dialogue was initiated in 2019 based on the ISC3 Thought Starter “Towards a Common Understanding of Sustainable Chemistry”. The dialogue invited all stakeholders to voice opinions and share their expectations towards the emerging concept. Lively discussions took place during the first ISC3 Stakeholder Forum in June 2019. Furthermore, the Thought Starter was introduced to the SAICM stakeholders through an INF doc, which was submitted by the ISC3 to the OEWG in Montevideo, as well as at a workshop at the margins of the IP3 in Bangkok.
The revised version of the paper “Key Characteristics of Sustainable Chemistry” was presented at the 2nd ISC3 Stakeholder Forum in November 2020. The paper can be downloaded below.
Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions. We are looking forward to learning about your ideas, expectations and questions! (contact©isc3.org)
