Subcommittee on Green Chemistry


As a result of the formation of the Interdivisional Committee on Green Chemistry for Sustainable Development (ICGCSD) in 2017, the  Subcommittee on Green Chemistry has been dissolved and is no longer active. Please see the ICGCSD webpage.


The aim of this Subcommittee is to develop actions devoted to the cause of green chemistry for its wider benefit to the future of chemistry and society as whole. Since 2006, the Subcommittee is involved in the planning of the International Conference on Green Chemistry (ICGC) series.
