Hazardous chemicals can be found everywhere, from the world’s most remote locations to everyday products such as clothes, electronics and food packaging. Some increase the risk of serious illness. Others damage the environment. At ChemSec, we’ve decided to take action. We are an independent, non-profit organisation committed to the development of sustainable chemicals use through dissemination of knowledge, collaboration and practical tools.
