Cosmetics and personal care products can contain harmful endocrine disrupting chemicals (EDCs) and other substances of concern, but their labels can be hard to read. The infographic launched by the Health and Environment Alliance (HEAL) and Tegengif/Erase All Toxins today uncovers the story behind chemicals in cosmetics.
The IED covers approximately 50,000 industrial installations and is thus the key piece of legislation to drive down emissions from coal plants, refineries, iron and steel manufacturing, waste treatment and intensive livestock farming.
But the IED is so far not delivering on better health, and urgently needs to be updated to include the zero pollution ambition, and also requirements for CO2 emission cuts.
HEAL also supports a petition to ensure that the IED delivers on the Green Deal commitments.
