The Publications Division of the American Chemical Society (ACS) has joined the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) Publishers Compact.

By signing on, ACS Publications pledges support to the SDGs, with particular attention to three: Zero Hunger (goal 2); Affordable and Clean Energy (goal 7); and Industry, Innovation and Infrastructure (goal 9).

By continuing to prioritise these areas, ACS Publications is aiming to help develop sustainability practices and accelerating progress of the United Nations’ SDGs.

“Sustainability is a key value at ACS Publications, and we are elated to join the SDG Publishers Compact and champion these goals,” said ACS Publications Senior Vice President, Journals Publishing Group, Sarah Tegen. “We are proud that our portfolio of journals, including the newly introduced ACS ES&T Air and ACS Sustainable Resource Management, drives significant innovation and progress by publishing groundbreaking work on sustainability research across the fields of chemistry.”

Numerous journals in the ACS Publications portfolio are dedicated to publishing research in the areas of food science, clean energy and industrial innovation. ACS’ growing portfolio of journals publishes research that contributes to sustainability — including titles such as the Journal of Agricultural and Food ChemistryEnergy & Fuels, and Environmental Science & Technology, among others. Select journals frequently publish special issues on specific topics in these areas. ACS Publications is contributing to the progress of the SDGs by featuring some of the most innovative work in these fields.

Articles in ACS Publications journals also support the ACS Campaign for a Sustainable Future. Last year, ACS announced a portfolio of strategic initiatives designed to have a transformational impact on the chemistry enterprise. ACS will invest up to $50 million over the span of five years on four initiatives that embody ACS’ commitment to advance the broader chemistry enterprise and its practitioners for the benefit of Earth and all its people.
