Humanitarian Elements

These elements of Sustainable Chemistry are presented to emphasize core humanitarian aims and principles.  Since chemistry has existed as a discipline, it has played a central role in meeting fundamental human needs. As we continue to press against the limits of natural systems it will remain a challenge to ensure basic needs such as food, water, security, and shelter for future generations.  Sustainable Chemistry should also strive to ensure that risks and benefits are equally shared among populations.
