The Beyond Benign team is more than excited to welcome the University of York to our Green Chemistry Commitment program!
Led by Professor Helen Sneddon, the Green Chemistry Centre of Excellence (GCCE) at the University of York is a world-leading academic facility for developing Green and Sustainable chemistry teaching and research through a variety of technology platforms and within its highly successful graduate program.
“In an ideal world, Green Chemistry wouldn’t exist as a sub-discipline. We need to move to a way of thinking where sustainability is considered as part of everything we do. Signing this commitment is symbolic of the growing integration of Green Chemistry across all Chemistry teaching and research at York. The next generation of chemists have enormous potential to accelerate the shift to greener chemistry, and it’s an honour to be part of that process.” – Professor Helen Sneddon, Head of the GCCE.
By signing the Green Chemistry Commitment, the GCCE aims to ensure that all students will be exposed to the principles of Green Chemistry and develop the required skills to practice sustainability through chemistry.
