|Foundations for Green Chemistry and Green Engineering|
One of the fathers of green chemistry, Dr. John Warner, provides an introduction to green chemistry, as well as ideas for how to build this concept into education and practice.
Green engineering applies principles similar to those of green chemistry to process and product design. In this webinar, experts in green engineering introduce principles, tools, and examples of this practice.

As companies seek to improve the sustainability of their products, communication and transparency within the supply chain is essential, particularly in light of increased stakeholder demands for ingredient transparency. This webinar will focus on how to effectively get information flowing through the supply chain about chemical hazards and green chemistry solutions.
With heightened consumer awareness surrounding chemicals and toxins being used in everyday products, it is critical that chemical companies find ways to develop safer products. This presentation will take a deeper dive into the developmental and commercialization process for creating safer chemicals for industrial and consumer products.
