Relating to Goal 9 and Goal 12, this paper aims to contribute to the understanding of metal demand development over time by illustrating the impacts of different aspects of technological change.
This Elsevier Atlas Award winning article recognises the role of company-led sustainability standards in supporting SDG 12 (responsible consumption and production). Company-led standards can increase environmental best management practices throughout the food production supply chain.

Focussing on SDGs 3 (Good Health and Well-being), 12 (Responsible Consumption and Production), 14 (Life Below Water) and 15 (Life on Land), this Elsevier Atlas Award winning review explores the effects of antibiotics on natural microbial communities in soil and water systems.
The number of certification programs has exploded over the last decade, yet we know little about where they operate and whether they are best serving farmers and the environment in those locations. Winning the Elsevier Atlas Award in January 2018, this paper presents the first global map of commodity crop certification as a means to identify the best ways to strengthen and expand certification to support poor rural communities and protect threatened species.The paper contributes to SDGs 1, 10, 12 and 15.
Huge amounts of food waste exist in the consumption stage in developed countries. The waste can be converted into safe, nutritious, and value-added livestock feeds. ReFeed can be a game changer, simultaneously addressing multiple challenges such as food security, resource and environmental sustainability, and climate change. This is related to SDG's 2, 12, 13 and 14.
World Efficiency Solutions (WES) is the premier international meeting for the low-carbon and resource-efficient economy focussed on creating the low-carbon and resource-efficient market place. WES was first held in 2015 in Paris during COP21 negotiations, focusing on climate change solutions. World Efficiency develops a new environment consensus: economic and human activities must, to be sustainable, be redesigned to limit their impact on the environment while awareness of the planetary limits (climate change and resources scarcity) becomes widespread. A key objective for WES 2017 is to Identify new market opportunities aligned to the 2030 Sustainable Development Goals (estimated market opportunities are larger than USD 12 trillion) and the Paris Agreement on Climate Change from 2015.

From waste to wealth using green chemistry: The way to long term stability
This paper provides an overview on societal challenges and opportunities associated with waste valorization strategies, contributing to SDG 12. Moving away from the linear economy model, waste becomes a resource rather than a burden for the society. Focusing on two specific waste streams – namely plastics and food supply chain wastes – it explores a circular economy model. Bearing in mind that waste is a resource, initiatives all over the world should not only target minimizing or totally stopping land-filling but also reducing existing land-fills through landfill mining. In accordance with SDG 17, Clark suggests a three-way partnership between industry, government and the public – where each actor plays a specific role in promoting new technologies, developing supportive regulations and embracing a new consumption attitude towards waste.
Venus and Alexandri present a model to bridge the organic waste sector and the chemical production sector to develop bio-based platform chemicals, showing connectedness of SDGs 9,11 and 12. Starting with an overview of some of the potential feedstock routes to bio-based platform chemicals, the authors provide an overview of the opportunities, value, production routes, and examples of companies producing these platform chemistries. They conclude with a number of technical and institutional challenges to bio-based platform chemical production as well as potential opportunities moving forward.
This article outlines a new chemical design strategy focused on Eastman Chemical’s development of a novel, green chemistry based solvent called Omnia. Innovating with intent aptly describes the interdisciplinary process Eastman took in developing and commercializing Omnia, from the early engagement of chemists and toxicologists to identify safe molecules, to the pilot testing for performance with a small scale formulator, to making the economic, performance, and sustainability case internally and externally. Perkins also notes some of the challenges of developing and commercializing a novel solvent and the critical need for early supply chain engagement given the high cost, time, and risk associated with bringing safer ingredients to market exploring issues related to SDGs 9 and 12.
