Introduction to Green Chemistry
Jul 21 @ 1:00 pm EDT – 2:00 pm EDT

Design for Environment (DfE) is the recognition that the environmental impacts of a product over its entire life cycle is largely determined at the design phase. DfE should form the foundation for a strong sustainability program, specifically for product stewardship. Green Chemistry, defined as a set of principles to minimize the use and generation of hazardous substances during the manufacture of product, is essentially the application of DfE at the molecular level. A central tenet of Green Chemistry is that hazard (i.e. negative impacts on human health and the environment) should be viewed as a design flaw.

Green Chemistry is a transformational approach to pollution prevention that can make your business more sustainable and, when integrated into the material innovation & exploration stage of new product development, can further lead to business opportunities through innovative design of products and processes. This webinar will provide a basic primer of the principles of Green Chemistry and a discussion of how Green Chemistry can be incorporated into your sustainability strategy.

Audience: This webinar is geared to professionals tasked in developing business sustainability programs as well as Research & Development staff or Project Managers creating new products or processes.

Summit for Sustainability in Materials & Manufacturing @ U.S. Space & Rocket Center
Aug 18 – Aug 19 all-day

Protecting and sustaining the environment has evolved into one of the most significant priorities for today’s corporations. Due to new and ever-changing government regulations and directed local initiatives, it is increasingly important for leading manufacturers and material suppliers to encourage their organizations to implement sound environmental practices that promote sustainable resource stewardship.

The purpose of the Summit for Sustainability in Materials & Manufacturing is to identify current changes in environmental and sustainability standards, and to inform manufacturing leaders and decision makers of best practices, smart solutions and innovations available to their organizations. Conference programming will focus on strategic resource management and address opportunities to implement cost savings due to sustainable practices. The summit will also allow corporations to demonstrate their support of dialogue focused on current environmental policies, initiatives and challenges.

Sponsorship and exhibitor opportunities are also available.
