Annual GC3 Innovators Roundtable
The Annual GC3 Innovators Roundtable is where members, potential members, and invited guests come together to share relevant and up to date information, experiences and knowledge that can help advance the implementation of green chemistry and design for environment practices and the production and marketing of safer chemicals, materials and products.
GC3 members are champions and innovators in the fields of green chemistry, design for the environment, and the production of safer chemicals, materials and products. Approximately 75% of GC3 members are individual companies and 25% are representatives from non-governmental organizations, local, state and federal government agencies, and consulting firms. All members agree to a set of guidelines and policies.
