The impact of our technologies on nature is pronounced, and scientists and policy makers are working hard to change the way we design, use and dispose of products (and waste products) so as to minimize their harm. Green chemistry, sustainable engineering and environmental toxicology are all fields where our fellows lead with their innovative ideas and inventions.
