Chemists’ contributions to the global approach for tackling pollution

May 24, 2022

In this panel discussion, held on Tuesday, 30 August 2022, 09:15 – 10:30, we well discuss how can chemistry contribute to Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

On 2 March 2022, the 5th UN Environment Assembly concluded with 14 resolutions to strengthen actions for nature to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals. Most of them require contributions from Chemistry community, especially:

  • Resolution L13: End Plastic Pollution – by developing a new legally binding instrument
  • Resolution L14: Science Policy Panel to support the sound management of chemicals and waste to prevent pollution

This moderated panel discussion, which is one of many activities of EuChemS on topics of global concern to which science shall proactively contribute, focuses on the L14 resolution.

The session will feature prestigious panelists from the international chemistry community, including representatives from the Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC), the American Chemical Society (ASC), the German Chemical Society (GDCh), and last, but not least, the European Chemical Society (EuChemS).
