Department of Chemistry signs Green Chemistry Commitment
The Department of Chemistry at the University of Toronto has become the first unit outside of the United States to sign the Green Chemistry Commitment (GCC). The GCC is overseen by Beyond Benign, a United States not-for-profit organization created by Dr. Amy Cannon and Dr. John Warner, a founder of the principles of green chemistry. Within the GCC, academic institutions collaborate to share resources and know-how in order to positively impact how the next generation of scientists are educated about sustainability issues.
In signing the GCC, the Department of Chemistry has agreed to integrate green chemistry instruction as a core teaching mandate, ensuring that all undergraduate chemistry students are trained in green chemistry principles. The move to sign the GCC was spearheaded by teaching faculty in the Department of Chemistry in conjunction with the student-run Green Chemistry Initiative (GCI), which has been promoting green chemistry and sustainable lab practices at U of T since 2012.
