DetoX - Campaigning for safer chemicals
Finnish family daughter participating in the "Generations X" biomonitoring.
After years of chemicals mismanagement resulting in the widespread contamination of wildlife, humans and the environment, WWF saw REACH as a unique opportunity to close the knowledge gap on chemicals and secure a safer management system for chemicals in Europe. Influencing the content of the much debated REACH legislation and facing one of the biggest and most powerful industries in Europe over 3 years was certainly a challenge. This 12-page brochure gives an overview of the DetoX campaign carried out by WWF during the entire REACH legislative process.
