Everyone deserves a safe and clean environment. But in many places, just breathing can make you sick.
We're using science to tackle pollution and toxic chemicals on multiple fronts. So everyone — especially the most vulnerable and people living in communities most in harm’s way — can live healthier lives.
Through cutting-edge research, wide-ranging partnerships and a focus on strengthening laws and policies that protect health, we’re making air, water, food and household products safer.
