To celebrate the successful first year of the International Sustainable Chemistry Collaborative Centre (ISC3) as well as to present our upcoming activities, the ISC3 will host an anniversary event on 17 September 2018 in Bonn. The event will introduce you to the emerging concept of sustainable chemistry as a game-changing contribution to sustainable development and invites you to join the work of the ISC3.

The ISC3 is a new independent, international institution promoting sustainable chemistry solutions worldwide. In September 2017, the ISC3 opened its offices in Bonn hosted by GIZ – Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit.

As a new transformative approach, sustainable chemistry focusses on the use of environmentally and socially friendly alternatives and supports economic innovation. Delivered at scale, it implies new business opportunities, new jobs, and a key contribution to the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
