Healthy people thrive in a healthy economy. A good job is an important social determinant of health. Good jobs that are green jobs also serve to protect public health and the environment. Investment in the green innovation economy will put people to work and create a healthier environment.
The Environmental Health Strategy Center works for a healthy economy by promoting green chemistry & chemical engineering, and leveraging investment in research and development of safer materials, such as bio-based plastics made from locally-sourced, sustainably harvested feedstocks.
