It is crucial to integrate green chemistry as well as security into laboratory culture using a systems thinking approach, given that chemists will be responsible for developing molecular-level innovations that address global challenges. It is critical for both society and the environment to have chemists trained with the knowledge and values necessary to perform this task in the safest manner possible, as this affects not only the chemical industry but also society as a whole in the pursuit of a sustainable future. Green chemistry is currently recognized as the framework for conducting chemistry in a way that is beneficial to life. This article highlights the potential of conceptualizing green chemistry from the perspective of systems thinking to foster a laboratory environment that prioritizes safety. This can result in a shift in the emphasis of the security culture from compliance to proactivity, since chemists gain ownership and control over their safety by evaluating the risk associated with conducting a reaction. One approach that is emphasized is the Guide to Green Chemistry Experiments for Undergraduate Organic Laboratories. The guide employs DOZN 2.0, a green chemistry metric that enables a quantitative approach to identifying and evaluating the dangers associated with a chemical reaction. Green chemistry is an integral component of the Green Laboratories movement and assists research institutions in achieving their safety and sustainability objectives. However, effective communication and collaboration between environmental safety and health (EH&S) and environmental sustainability professionals are crucial for the successful implementation of these initiatives. Gaining insight into the impact of motivational focus on attitudes and perceptions can facilitate more effective collaboration among stakeholders and enable Green Laboratories to implement these techniques more efficiently.
