Letter from NGOs | Time to ensure the EU is on the path to a toxic-free environment
Re: Time to ensure the EU is on the path to a toxic-free environment
We, the undersigned, warmly welcome the European Commission’s commitment to a future-proof and
ambitious Chemicals Strategy for Sustainability (CSS) that ensures health, environmental and economic
resilience, and a toxic-free environment.
This week, we expect you to present a truly transformative CSS, driving the detoxification and decarbonisation
of our economies, while creating millions of secure jobs. Shifting from toxic and linear resource-intensive
production models to safer and circular sustainable ones seeking zero pollution and zero waste will improve
the resilience of our economies. But this commitment will be undermined if the actions to be announced this
week in the strategy are put under a general reservation of impact or innovation assessment.
