ISC3 Network

Shaping transformation together

ISC3 Network

In order to make the concept of Sustainable Chemistry a breakthrough worldwide, the ISC3 relies on a broad network. A key instrument is the “ISC3net – International Sustainable Chemistry Network” which forms a platform for a global exchange of information, ideas and projects on this topic. Further ISC3 collaborates with partners from policy, civil society, industry and academia to shape its transformative agenda.

Our Partners

On the road to Sustainable Chemistry, the ISC3 has started to develop a wide network of partner organisations worldwide:
UNEP

UNEP

The United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) is the leading global environmental authority that sets the global environmental agenda, promotes the coherent implementation of the environmental dimension of sustainable development within the United Nations system and serves as an authoritative advocate for the global environment.

UN Environment work encompasses:
  • Assessing global, regional and national environmental conditions and trends
  • Developing international and national environmental instruments
  • Strengthening institutions for the wise management of the Environment

UNIDO

UNIDO

United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) is the specialized agency of the United Nations that promotes industrial development for poverty reduction, inclusive globalization nd environmental sustainability. The mission of UNIDO is to promote and accelerate inclusive and sustainable industrial development (ISID) in Member States. The relevance of ISID as an integrated approach to all three pillars of sustainable development is recognized by the recently adopted 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the related Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which will frame United Nations and country efforts towards sustainable development in the next fifteen years. Accordingly, the Organization’s programmatic focus is structured in three thematic priorities, each of which represents different aspects of ISID:

  • Creating shared prosperity
  • Advancing economic competitiveness
  • Safeguarding the Environment
