Title: Sustainable Chemistry- Implementation of a Scientific Concept in Policy and Economy Workshop, 15-16 May 2007, Berlin


1
Sustainable Chemistry- Implementation of a
Scientific Concept in Policy and
Economy Workshop, 15-16 May 2007, Berlin
  • OECD Milestones
  • Henrik Harjula, Ph.D.
  • OECD
  • Environment Directorate

2
SUSTAINABLE CHEMISTRY OECD Milestones
  • In 1998, OECD Governments endorsed the start of a
    new initiative.
  • Workshop held in Venice (October 1998) to
  • Identify SC activities underway (survey)
  • Identify effective techniques and approaches and
  • Identify activities that could further the
    development and use of SC.

3
SUSTAINABLE CHEMISTRY OECD Milestones
  • Recommendations from Venice Workshop
  • Encourage SC research and development
  • Establish an awards programme
  • Establish an information exchange activity
  • Develop guidance and
  • Promote the incorporation of SC concepts into
    chemical education curricula

4
SUSTAINABLE CHEMISTRY OECD Milestones
  • An Issue Team was established in 1999 with
    representatives from Belgium, Canada, Germany,
    Italy, Japan, Mexico, the Netherlands, Sweden,
    the UK and the US
  • Workgroups were established for implementation of
    the seven (7) recommendations from Venice
    (ENV/JM(2000)11), and the Proceedings were
    published (ENV/JM/MONO(99)19)

5
SUSTAINABLE CHEMISTRY OECD Milestones
  • The second survey in 2000
  • Workshop on Research and Development in October
    2000 in Tokyo
  • Objectives
  • - Develop background material for guidance that
    can assist member countries and others develop
    effective RD programmes and
  • - Develop a Mid-Long Range Work Plan.

6
SUSTAINABLE CHEMISTRY OECD Milestones
  • On the basis of discussions at the Tokyo Workshop
    and the second survey the following outputs were
    prepared
  • Guidance for Establishing Research and
    Development Programmes in Sustainable Chemistry
    (ENV/JM/MONO(2002)12)
  • Mid-Long Range Work Plan (ENV/JM/RD(2000)15 and
  • Sustainable Chemistry Brochure (2004).

7
SUSTAINABLE CHEMISTRY OECD Milestones
  • Recent Developments
  • Dessau Workshop, 27-29 January 2004 (UBA),
    focused on ENV/JM/RD(2004)6
  • Available criteria and indicators for SC
  • Methods and instruments for evaluating
    sustainability and
  • Elements to make sustainability concrete for
    chemicals management.

8
SUSTAINABLE CHEMISTRY OECD Milestones
  • 37th Joint Meeting (November 2004)
  • ENV/JM(2004)25 provided the scope, linkages with
    other areas of the OECD Chemicals Programme, and
    next steps for future OECD work on Sustainable
    Chemistry
  • There was support for a small group to look at
    next steps.

9
SUSTAINABLE CHEMISTRY OECD Milestones
  • 38th Joint Meeting (June 2005)
  • Germany agreed after the 37th JM to take the lead
    on Sustainable Chemistry and
  • Germany and the Issue Team would put Sustainable
    Chemistry into the context of existing OECD
    activities based on ENV/JM(2004)25.

10
SUSTAINABLE CHEMISTRY OECD Milestones
  • 39th Joint Meeting (February 2006)
  • Incentives for Implementation of SC
    ENV/JM(2006)2
  • The JM appreciated the wide scope of the work
    proposed and agreed to the establishment of a
    Sustainable Chemistry Network for information
    exchange, review of new developments and further
    elaboration of incentives for SC.

11
SUSTAINABLE CHEMISTRY OECD Milestones
  • 41st Joint Meeting (June 2007)
  • Implementation of the Sustainable Chemistry
    Network ENV/JM(2007)4.

12
SUSTAINABLE CHEMISTRY OECD Milestones
  • Summary
  • Proceedings of the Venice Workshop 1998
  • Tokyo Workshop 2000
  • IUPAC Workshop on GC Education 2001
  • OECD Env. Outlook for Chemicals Industry 2001
  • Guidance for RD in SC 2002
  • Dessau Workshop 2004 (UBA)
  • SC Brochure 2004
  • SC Network 2006 and
  • Incentives for implementation 2006.
