Committee on Environmental Improvement
The Committee enhances awareness and response to challenges to sustainability for the chemical community. Sustainability is seen as providing for the environmental and human health and economic and societal needs of today without compromising the progress and success of future generations. It addresses the major challenges of energy, food for a growing population, and clean water.
The Committee, as specifies under ACS’s charter, must also monitor current and emerging environmental problems, research environmental chemistry issues, and develop environmental position statements for ACS.
