Ensuring the non-toxicity of products and packaging

Speakers' Presentations - 5 April 2022

The presence of harmful chemicals in products is impacting both our health and our environment. Consumers are exposed to many hazardous chemicals on a daily basis. The European Commission has committed, in the Chemicals Strategy for Sustainability and the Circular Economy Action Plan, to make sustainable products and packaging the norm. Addressing the presence of hazardous chemicals from the design phase is a requisite to achieving these objectives. 

This webinar went into greater depth to answer these key questions: 

  • How does the presence of hazardous chemicals in products impact our health? 
  • How zero waste solutions are contributing to minimizing exposure to hazardous chemicals? 
  • What can the EU do to ensure clean materials streams, achieve a toxic-free circular economy and protect consumers health?
