This past fall, the University of Toronto became the first Canadian university to sign on to the Green Chemistry Commitment. Founded by Beyond Benign, a charitable foundation committed to enhancing green chemistry education for people of all ages and backgrounds, the Green Chemistry Commitment will involve systematic changes to the U of T chemistry curriculum. These changes will ensure that all undergraduate and graduate chemistry students gain a knowledge of green chemistry and sustainable design in their courses. U of T joins 32 other colleges and universities, including the University of California, Berkeley, in its commitment to produce university graduates who will enter the workforce armed with the knowledge of how to design less toxic molecules and implement sustainable industrial protocols.
