December 8, 2021’Louisville Charter’ pushes for US chemicals industry overhaul

More than 100 NGOs and firms in the US and beyond have signed onto a blueprint for transforming the national chemicals sector, calling for "fundamental and comprehensive reform" to safeguard ecological and human wellbeing. The Louisville Charter for Safer Chemicals highlights a need to cease manufacturing persistent or bioaccumulative substances, mandate non-toxic alternatives, restrict potentially concerning substance classes via science-centred strategies and ensure civic participation in chemicals-related decisions.  Published on 7 December by the Coming Clean network, the roadmap is backed by environmental justice parties, eco- and public health organisations and health, business and research experts.
