ClientEarth has joined more than 70 other environmental health, women’s and consumer groups in Europe calling for a future free of endocrine disrupting chemicals (EDCs).
The EDC-Free Europe coalition has today released a statement that identifies the current gaps in the protection of people and the environment against hormone disrupting chemicals and proposes concrete and precise actions to address the gaps.
ClientEarth Law and Policy Advisor, Dr Apolline Roger said:
“ClientEarth is proud to have contributed to the statement on the EU strategy of the EDC-Free coalition. We’re calling on the European Commission to carefully consider each of the eight measures proposed by the coalition to improve the regulation of EDCs.
“By adopting a more precautionary approach and avoiding the substitution of one harmful chemical for another, these measures will strengthen EU regulation and finally offer greater protection to the vulnerable groups most impacted, such as expectant mothers and children.”
