Chemicals without Harm

Government initiatives could be one of the elements of a chemical conversion strategy and could do so without new laws. Government agencies could work with economic sectors, states, non-government organizations and foreign and international governments to promote shifts towards safer alternatives to hazardous chemicals. Restructuring government agencies to create a central chemicals agency such as the European Chemicals Agency would create a central focus for chemical policy. Effectively reforming the existing chemical control laws or passing new statutes could be helpful, but is currently unlikely.
