Letter to European Commission on the non-toxic environment strategy

Under the seventh Environmental Action Plan (7th EAP), the European Commission is committed to the development of a Union’s strategy for a non-toxic environment by the end of 2018. According to the Health and Environment Alliance (HEAL), keeping that promise will be a game changer.

Following the publication of HEAL’s vision on Europe leading the way to a non-toxic environment, we wrote a letter to the European Commission outlying our vision for a European non-toxic environment strategy and a proposal for twelve priority actions.

A letter from the European Commission responding to this urge to action is available online.
