Chemical Safety

We come into contact with chemicals every day. They make our lives easier, but they also can pose a threat to human health and the environment. Substances which accumulate in the human body, animals and plants and which are dispersed by air water or passed on through the food chain are particularly hazardous.

"I firmly believe that environmental action leads to greater social justice and that the two are inextricably linked."
