Abstract

Where we fit in to the puzzle: The world is standing at a crossroads and with large‐scale challenges and difficulties facing us all, the role of chemists in upcoming developments will continue to be a crucial one. In this article, the United Nations 17 Sustainable Goals are outlined and highlighted to show where chemists will fit into the puzzle of trying to reshape and reform the environment and industrial practices so that targets can be reached.
