How Industry is Driving Sustainability through Innovation

ACS Webinars

Working to make a company more green doesn’t mean it has to send its bottom line more into the red. Successful companies have built sustainability into their operations by utilizing cutting edge innovation to increase production efficiency while lowering impact on the environment. Most are measuring their operations against the United Nations 2030 Sustainable Development Goals and the American Chemistry Council is aggregating efforts for annual reporting purposes.

President of Bioscience Research, Peter Eckes of BASF, Chief Sustainability Officer, Gayle Schueller of 3M, and Executive Vice President of Sustainability, Technology & Innovation of SABIC, Bob Maughon highlight innovations in sustainability. Discover the men and women who made them possible and learn about future career opportunities in this field. 

This ACS Webinar is moderated by Rebekah Paul of the American Chemical Society and co-produced with ACS Industry Member Programs.
