We envision a world in which the chemical sciences play their optimal role in improving the quality
of life and wellbeing for people everywhere and ensuring a sustainable future for the planet.
Inspired by a deeply-felt ethical concern for the disparities among and between people in different
countries, IOCD's mission is to promote the pursuit and application of the chemical sciences for
sustainable, equitable human development and economic growth, through:
- Repositioning chemistry as a science for the benefit of society;
- Promoting the role of the chemical sciences in sustainable development
