How Our Perceptions of Green Chemistry Will Drive Implementation


3 p.m. Wednesday August 14

How can we have the greatest impact on accelerating the adoption of Green Chemistry? This question comes up at most gatherings of people interested in advancing Green Chemistry and the answers in the hallways are varied. Marketing teaches us that people will act on their own perceptions. A recent survey of professionals in Green Chemistry looked at what are the perceptions of Green Chemists with regard to the question of greatest impact as well as some of the commonly-held perceptions like price premium and the value of regulations. This webinar will discuss these perceptions and compare the results of perception to the reality of some success stories.
