Sustainability is a path of continuous improvement, wherein the products and services required by society are delivered with progressively less negative impact upon the Earth. A special section on measuring sustainability discusses sustainability trends in the chemical industry, using the P-graph framework to design supply chains for sustainability and recovering metals from electronic wastes. Other topics in this issue include construction management, chemical reactivity in Process Hazard Analysis and heat transfer fluids.
