Celebrating Laws and Policies Protecting from Hazardous Chemicals
The Future Policy Award showcases legislation and policies that create better living conditions for current and future generations. The aim of the award is to raise global awareness for exemplary laws and policies and speed up policy action towards a healthy planet and just, sustainable and peaceful societies. The Future Policy Award is the first award for laws and policies and is celebrated on an international level.
The WFC’s Future Policy Award is working in partnership with the United Nation Environment Programme (UNEP), the Strategic Approach to International Chemicals Management (SAICM), the International Labour Organisation (ILO), the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) and the United Nations Institute for Training and Research (UNITAR), United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), and with the support of the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, and Nuclear Safety (BMU), the German Environment Agency (UBA), the Michael Otto Foundation and the Jua Foundation to highlight exemplary laws and policies that protect people and the environment from hazardous chemicals. The focus will be to highlight laws, policies and legal frameworks that minimize the adverse effects of chemicals exposure on human health, with a focus on children’s health and the environment.
