University of York
The University of York has a longstanding world-leading reputation for pioneering pure and applied green chemistry research and associated training and education through the Green Chemistry Centre of Excellence (GCCE). This includes developing green chemistry education interventions and resources that are adopted internationally. Within the Department of Chemistry at York, green chemistry is integrated into undergraduate and postgraduate curricula as is exemplified through the highly successful MSc in Green Chemistry and Sustainable Industrial Technology. The chemistry undergraduate degree programme is currently being revised as part of the University of York’s transformative modularisation and semesterisation programme for students starting in 2023, and the GCCE has therefore taken leadership of ensuring that all students will be exposed to the core principles of green chemistry and can develop expertise in thinking about, and practising, chemistry in a more sustainable way.
