In 2017 Challenge will be open to individuals and non-profit organizations whose projects use green and sustainable chemistry solutions to tackle some of the developing world’s greatest sustainability challenges whether in water, sanitation or energy.

  • Be replicable, scalable, sustainable and set a benchmark for innovation – new ideas or concepts in development will be given preference over more advanced projects.
  • Have practical applicability; include an implementation plan. Please note that if the project has been developed in a high income country, contextually appropriate development knowledge will need to be demonstrated, for instance through a developing country implementation partner.
  • Be suitable for use in developing countries. Have considered the project’s social impact on local communities, including whether it has a possible gender dimension either in design or implementation.
  • Have at least two of the following Green and Sustainable Chemistry objectives:
    • Reduce or eliminate the use or generation of one or more hazardous substance or material
    • Provide a more sustainable use of resources, materials, or products, or more sustainable manufacturing or application of a chemical product
