Would you like to participate in advancing the topic of sustainable chemistry at the global level and win a scholarship?

In 2016, Environment Ministers invited “countries, international organizations and other interested stakeholders, including the private sector, with relevant experience with the issue of sustainable chemistry, to submit by 30 June 2017 best practices in the area of sustainable chemistry, indicating how these may enhance the sound management of chemicals, inter alia through the implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, as well as SAICM and chemicals and waste related MEAs.”

The call was made at the second session of the United Nations Environment Assembly (UNEA) through adoption of Resolution 2/7 on the sound management of chemicals and waste.

Pursuant to Resolution 2/7, UN Environment, through collaboration of the Chemicals and Health Branch of the Economy Division and the Secretariat of the Basil, Rotterdam and Stockholm Conventions, is inviting interested stakeholders to submit best practices by 30 June 2017. If you need more time, please contact chemicals@unep.org.

Moreover, to advance the understanding of the sustainable chemistry concept at the global level, including related perceptions, ideas and expectations, interested stakeholders are invited to participate in a complementary survey on the topic.

To submit best practices and participate in the complementary survey, please use the following link:

Chosen from all respondents, three scholarships for a UNITAR e-Learning course in the areas of chemicals management, environment, or another topic of choice will be awarded.
We look forward to receiving your response and thank you in advance for your time and consideration. In case you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us via chemicals@unep.org.
