Advancing goals 9 and 12, this article argues that, if chemistry is to contribute effectively to achieving the SDGs, we need to change the way that things are done at both ends of the chemical supply chain.
Addressing goals 9 and 12, this article explores the sustainabiity commitments and key performance indictors (KPIs) implemented by Roquette, a global leader in plant-based ingredients.

This chapter addresses SDGs 3 and 9 by examining the technologies devised in Glassense—Wearable technologies for sensory supplementation. This regional project aimed to develop a proof of concept prototype of a sensorized pair of glasses to assist users with limited technology skills and multiple disabilities.
The efficiency and power output of a PV module decreases at the peak of sunlight due to energy loss as heat and this reduces the module power output. To combat this, the authors propose a multi-concept cooling technique and evidence the increased productivity, furthering SDG 7.

To address goals 6 and 12, this chapter explores the sustainability issues of preparing and dyeing apparel fabrics, with a focus on colouring cotton fabrics with reactive dyes.
Advancing goal 7, this paper assesses the key process strengths and limitations in microalgal biofuel production by reviewing the methods of biomass harvesting and lipid extraction that are currently available, along with the conditions that are favourable for lipid accumulation and the yield variations from different microalgae speices.

This article develops SDG 9 (industry, innovation and infrastructure) whilst contributing to SDG 12 and SDG 13 (responsible production and climate action). The expanding tools in the chemist’s toolbox of designed surfactants allows biomimicry at the molecular level. Now enabled to better mimic the natural world, future chemistries have the potential to be greener and more sustainable.

This article devotes special attention to synthetic chemistry that is environmentally responsible, developing SDG 9 (industry, innovation and infrastructure) whilst supporting environmental SDGs 12, 13, 14 and 15.
Sherwood et al. elaborate on the role of one particular organic solvent, in light of a recent legislation on restricting its use in the European Union. Bruce Lipshutz pleads for a paradigm shift in chemical synthesis that focuses on the development of new chemistry in water rather than continuing the traditional route, which comes with many costs for the environment. This supports SDG 9 (industry, innovation and infrastructure) and SDG 12 (responsible consumption and production).
