The American Chemical Society (ACS) Board of Directors and the Senior Management team have long supported sustainability efforts and American Chemical Society has made it a core mission objective to work on implementing sustainability best practices over the last 7 years. In addition, they have engaged staff by encouraging participation in our sustainability effort such as recycling. ACS has worked with their contractors to foster an understanding of their sustainability goals and partner to achieve them.
The quest for sustainability has been a long, deliberate process that has taken "the village" to lead ACS to where they are now. Through their efforts they have achieved the prestigious USGBC gold certification for LEED Existing Buildings: Operations & Maintenance. They were the second building in the District to have achieved this certification and at certification one of only 40 in the country.
In addition to the many initiatives mentioned above, ACS Green Chemistry Institute promotes the implementation of green chemistry and engineering principles into all aspects of the chemical enterprise. ACS has also engaged its staff to support the green mission by forming an ACS Greening Committee which consists of staff members from across the organization that continually come up with innovative sustainability initiatives that can be implemented Society wide.
