OECD | Economic instruments to incentivise substitution of chemicals of concern

Your substances


This report was developed as background to the OECD Workshop on Government Approaches to Incentivise Substitution that took place in Paris on 20-21 September 2022 under the auspices of the OECD Working Party on Risk Management (WPRM). The drafting of this report as well as the organisation of the workshop was made possible thanks to a voluntary contribution from Australia.

The report provides an overview of economic instruments used in chemicals management and in other environmental domains that governments could consider to incentivise substitution of chemicals of concern.

The report was prepared by Daniel Slunge, Centre for Future Chemical Risk Assessment and Management, University of Gothenburg. The author would like to thank Thomas Sterner and Joel Tickner for constructive comments on an early draft. It also benefited from input from the workshop participants, the OECD secretariat, as well as members of the WPRM. It is published under the responsibility of the OECD Chemicals and Biotechnology Committee.
