I welcome this new course on Sustainable Chemistry. An understanding of sustainability and its vital role in the future chemical industry is essential to the training of the modern chemist.

Prof. Dr. James Clark, University of York, Programme Lecturer

The chemical industry stands out as a gatekeeper on the pathway towards a 1.5C world. It takes a generation of dedicated, interdisciplinary trained chemists to make that change happen. So congrats, Leuphana: With your Masters programme Sustainable Chemistry you really nailed it!

Sustainability is the license to operate for all industries today and in the future and chemistry plays a key role in providing innovative solutions to global challenges around themes such as energy and resource efficiency. Leuphana University’s new Master's Programme (M.Sc.) in Sustainable Chemistry will enable young professionals to build broad and interdisciplinary knowledge. This will help to meet an increasing demand for chemical solutions, that contribute to sustainable development and the Sustainable Development Goals of the Agenda 2030 and beyond.
