This workshop on the Chemistry of Sustainable Supply Chains, organized by the IUPAC Committee on Chemistry and Industry (COCI), will explore how chemistry-based industries are contributing to sustainable development in the various supply chains in the Great Lakes Region of North America. To be held 1 June 2012 in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, this workshop is the fourth in the COCI series previously held in Marl, Germany, Kawasaki, Japan, and Kuwait.
This workshop will focus on the Great Lakes region where many chemical companies and their customers and suppliers are situated. Its aim is to improve communication among chemical industries, chemical societies/IUPAC members or NAOs, and COCI. Although IUPAC occupies a unique and highly esteemed position at the center of the world of chemistry, better communication and understanding is needed. It is desirable for IUPAC to strengthen its relationship with chemical industries and absorb more suggestions from them for future activities.
The format of the workshop will allow COCI to update key stakeholders on IUPAC activities, such as the safety training program, and to listen to their concerns and ideas, especially input regarding Rio+20. Finding desirable methods of interaction between industry and IUPAC will be an important outcome of the meeting.
This workshop is planned as part of IUPAC project 2011-053-1-022. Chemical companies, from small to medium enterprises to global players, are invited to take part and to support the workshop.
