OUR GOALS

Science-based decision making

Provide decision-makers with objective information on the state of global chemical pollution through a periodical report

from exposure to risk assessment

Encourage translation of initial mapping of chemicals in the environment into health and environmental impact

AWARENESS and policy

Interest and influence political and regulatory level to address chemical pollution issues based on this information

The vision

The GPCPE project carries the vision of a future shared in-depth understanding of the extent and nature of chemical pollution in the world.

Tens of thousands of naturally or synthetically produced chemicals are available on the world market. Increase in their use, in terms of volume and structural diversity, is a result of rapid global economic growth in the past decades. Poor regulation and inadequate risk assessment and management strategies have led to widespread contamination that directly impacts ecosystems and public health.

Chemical pollution in the world

The chemical pollution of the planet and of its inhabitants is an issue probably as threatening to our civilisation as the climate change. Its diffuse nature however makes it difficult to assess and address as one global concern. That awareness is increasingly growing and the GCPCE initiative is taking part in it.
