About Us

More than 100 companies working together to develop safer chemistries: Change Chemistry, formerly the Green Chemistry and Commerce Council (GC3), is a collaboration of more than 100 members that aim to make safer and sustainable chemistries 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 chemistries, accelerate innovation and advance supportive policies. After 17 years as the Green Chemistry and Commerce Council, our organization has changed its name to Change Chemistry. Our new identity better represents the accomplishments of our members and today’s urgent need to accelerate the growth of green and sustainable chemistry solutions across the globe.

Vision: Change Chemistry, (formerly GC3) 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: 

  • Fostering value chain collaboration
  • Cultivating first-movers
  • Convening industry decision-makers to secure meaningful commitments
  • Advocating for a supportive policy environment

As we work to empower, connect, and orchestrate our broad and trusted network of companies, government agencies, and non-governmental organizations, we drive new collaborations, strategies, and policies that systematically change chemistry.
