Sustainable chemistry definition

The OECD website has published a definition of Sustainable Chemistry: “a scientific concept that seeks to improve the efficiency with which natural resources are used to meet human needs for chemical products and services.

Sustainable chemistry encompasses the design, manufacture and use of efficient, effective, safe and more environmentally benign chemical products and processes.” The OECD underlines that Sustainable Chemistry stimulates innovation across all sectors to produce increased performance and added value, whilst meeting human health and environmental goals.
