The Environmental Investigation Agency (EIA) is a non-profit organization that conducts investigations and advocacy work related to environmental issues and the protection of wildlife and natural resources.

EIA uncovered undisclosed emissions of harmful gases from major fluorochemical companies in the United States. These emissions, including potent greenhouse gases, were detected at facilities operated by Honeywell and Chemours. The findings highlight the urgent need for enhanced monitoring, reporting, and regulatory measures to address the environmental impact of fluorochemical production. The report underscores the industry's contribution to climate change and ozone depletion, raising concerns about unaccounted emissions equivalent to 200 coal plants' annual emissions.
