We bundle and promote chemical competencies that contribute to sustainable development
The German Chemical Society (GDCh) set up the Division of Sustainable Chemistry because the contribution of chemistry to sustainable development is becoming increasingly important worldwide. Almost all disciplines of chemistry are relevant in order to meet the central challenges of the future.

The equal consideration of economic, ecological and social objectives is a fundamental and decisive factor, as is the holistic view of products and processes over the entire life cycle.
sustainable chemistry is the key discipline that will ensure the future viability of industrial society. It is about sustainable contributions of chemistry to all areas of life (mobility, nutrition, clothing, living, etc.). It is also essential to introduce the concept of sustainability into all levels of training, research and production. The further development of current chemistry into sustainable chemistry is also an integral part of the circular economy and the energy transition. sustainable chemistry deals with the following challenges facing society:
