Tell us a bit more about the main activities, campaigns and/or projects you are working on at the moment?

CHEM Trust is currently focussing its efforts on the EU chemicals policy and legislative agenda relating to industrial chemicals, food contact chemicals, pesticides and biocides. We’re particularly focussed on the implementation of EU legislation on endocrine disrupting chemicals.

We also work to highlight the need for the Circular economy to include processes to address hazardous chemicals. Finally, we work to ensure that Brexit does not result in weaker regulation of chemicals within the UK.

In addition to our participation in the EEB’s chemicals working group, we are also part of the EDC Free network and Break Free From Plastic.
