The EDC-Free Europe coalition is urging all European Environment Ministers to call on the EU Commission to deliver their strategy to systematically reduce human and environmental exposures to endocrine disrupting chemicals (EDCs).
At a previous Council meeting in early March, European Environment Ministers already took a stance for our health and the environment.
The EDC-Free Europe coalition, representing 70 environmental, health, women's and consumer groups across Europe who share a concern about endocrine disruptors, has written to these ministers asking them to agree on Council conclusions on 26 June that urge the European Commission to:
- Act to truly reduce the environment and people's exposure to EDCs without further delay;
- Present a concrete action plan and a timeline for next steps and to move forward;
- Fulfill its obligations to ensure the minimization of exposure to EDCs as per the requirements of the 7th Environmental Action Programme and as a contribution to the EU commitments for a non-toxic environment.
