RES: Call on French government to give National Strategy on EDCs clear objectives for industry and business
Following the recent publication of Late lessons from early warnings by the European Environmental Agency (EEA), Réseau Environnement Santé (RES) joined the work of the Center for International Environmental Law (CIEL and ChemSec to put EDCs and other hazardous substances at the heart of French health and environment policies and its national economic and industrial strategies.
While the Ministry of Ecology and Sustainable Development presented a roadmap for the development of a national EDCs Strategy (SNPE) in February, the Minister of Industrial Recovery was more focused on the mechanisms of financial globalisation in France. The Ministry of Ecology should not become a ‘doormat’ for industrial recovery but on the contrary a driver for stimulating green research and industrial innovation said RES.
