A nonprofit organization, chartered by Congress, ACS is at the forefront of the evolving worldwide chemical enterprise and the premier professional home for chemists, chemical engineers, and related professions around the globe. The ACS Board of Directors and the Senior Management team have long supported sustainability efforts and ACS has made it a core mission objective to work on implementing sustainability best practices over the last 7 years.
