Environmental damage and abuse of science for evil purposes has become a major issue and a major problem at this time era of freedom. Humans have lost control in the name of freedom in the use of science and technology so that the disadvantages of science and technologies are felt in everyday life such as pollution and environmental damage. The issue of environmental pollution due to the use of pesticides is one proof of harm uncontrolled chemical science. The pollution has affected the biochemical reactions of various organisms, including humans that have an impact on enhancing health disorders. Another issue is genetically modified organisms as biochemical engineering that will destroy biodiversity and potentially cause health problems in humans. Biochemistry green approach to integrating biomedical ethics and the ethics of environmental chemicals is expected to be a strategy in controlling the use of science and technology in which environmentally friendly and oriented towards the protection of human health aspects. Biomedical ethics principles and ethics of chemical environment can be considered in making decisions in the safe use of chemical compounds to create green world according to the credo refuse, reuse I recycling, and reduce. This paper discuss material of green biochemistry for integrating biomedical ethics and ethics of environmental chemistry based on bioethics core curriculum of UNESCO and some experiences in several university or center or some recommendation in related fields.
