Program: Architecture, Design and Building Science
Green Chemistry founders and visionaries Paul Anastas and John Warner mark the 20th anniversary of the 12 Principles of Green Chemistry. Paul, as Yale professor and former EPA ORD administrator and White House OSTP Director, and John, as Green Chemistry entrepreneur, Perkin Medal laureate, former UMass professor and inventor with over 100 patents, will help us understand what Green Chemistry is and what it is not. They will explore how the practice of Green Chemistry has become a powerful driver for product innovation today, and how its adoption is essential for a sustainable tomorrow. Their discussion will illustrate how chemists are collaborating to unleash the power of Green Chemistry for greener building materials. This session is facilitated by Shawn Hunter, Sustainability Leader for DuPont Safety and Construction.
