Abstract: Our environment, which is endowed by nature, needs to be protected from ever-increasing chemical pollution. The challenge for the institution and industries is to come together and pursue development in the field of greener chemistry by reducing or eliminating the use and generation of hazardous substances. We have organized a national and international symposium for promoting green chemistry in India, which has provided the platform for interaction of concepts among the leading scientists. The main idea behind this to activate work toward green chemistry for which involvement of academic, industrial, and governmental and non-governmental bodies is needed collectively, which will help the designing and development of environment-friendly chemistry practices in India.
