ISC3 Stakeholder Forum

ISC3 – International Sustainable Chemistry Collaborative Centre

2nd ISC3 Stakeholder Forum, Online Event, 23-24 November 2020

The International Sustainable Chemistry Collaborative Centre (ISC3) will host its second Stakeholder Forum on 23-24 November 2020. Due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic and the resulting travel restrictions, the forum will be held online.

Founded on the initiative of the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMU) and the German Environmental Agency (UBA) 2017, the ISC3 engages in the transformation towards Sustainable Chemistry. The centre manages a knowledge platform and a network of experts, offers training and support for implementation, especially for developing countries, and carries out innovation scouting activities to discover new technologies, processes and business models.

Connecting stakeholders from policy, industry, academia, and civil society is a key element of the transformation towards Sustainable Chemistry and therefore of ISC3’s work. Whereas the first Stakeholder Forum focused its discussions and topics on laying the groundworks for a common understanding of Sustainable Chemistry and the international dialogue, the focus of the second Stakeholder Forum will shift towards the implementation and realisation of projects and ideas.

ISC3 is proud to have the opportunity of adding a presentation on the new UNEP Framework Manual on Green and Sustainable Chemistry to the agenda and hosting a workshop on specialised Manual on Education for Green and Sustainable Chemistry, under development.

To learn more about Stakeholder Forum, take a look at our Stakeholder Forum’s report, summarising the the first Stakeholder Forum 2019.
