- Essential medicines and vaccines,
- Sufficient safe water,
- A sustainable energy supply,
- Education in green chemistry and business which people can apply in their daily lives and teach to others,
- Safe processes in work environments where chemical hazards exist,
- Emergency support including essential supplies and technology.
