POLLUTION AND WASTE MANAGEMENT
OUR ACTION TODAY
Pollution affects human, animal, and ecosystem health. It is the leading cause of disease and death in the world, and nearly 92% of these deaths occur in developing countries. To address this problem, FFEM takes action during the entire product life cycle, from production to consumption.
Supporting sustainable consumption and production approaches
Supporting management of chemical products and reducing pollutant emissions
Improving management approach of hazardous waste
A cross-cutting approach
Human activities that generate pollution and waste are affecting ecosystems more than ever. To preserve the environment in the long term, the projects supported by FFEM encourage more sustainable practices, whether they involve reducing greenhouse gas emissions and pollution or improving waste management. With this in mind, we support cross-cutting projects that target biodiversity and human health as well as the climate. In this way, we contribute to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
