About Us

More than 100 companies are working together to develop safer chemistry:
Change Chemistry is a collaboration of more than 100 members that aim to make safer and sustainable chemistry widely available in the marketplace. Our members span diverse industries from leading chemical companies, brand manufacturers, and large retailers to innovative startups. We also engage with policymakers, non-profit organizations, and consulting firms to advance our mission. Together, we’re transforming markets to create a strong demand for and supply of safer, more sustainable alternatives. We do this by collaborating on projects that breakdown barriers to safer chemistry, accelerate innovation and advance supportive policies.

Vision: Change Chemistry envisions a global economy where all chemicals, materials, and products are safe and sustainable, from creation through disposal and reuse.

Mission: To advance this vision, Change Chemistry drives the commercial adoption of green and sustainable chemistry by catalyzing and guiding action across all industries, sectors, and supply chains.  

Change Chemistry pursues its vision and mission by:
