TOWARDS A SUSTAINABLE FUTURE
Can we pull the plug on climate change? Why should you care about green chemistry?
Addressing climate change and other environmental threats is one of the great challenges of our time. McGill is home to some of the world’s most celebrated researchers in fields that promise to transform energy, water resources, farming, transportation, waste management – research that can change the way we live our lives and care for the planet. Hundreds of McGill academics are leading change and discovery in areas like biodiversity and climate science, renewable energy, green chemistry, advanced materials, food security, environmental public policy and more. Because the planet has waited long enough.
