SETAC members and staff often work collaboratively with others to advance environmental science and applications. The work is done within projects targeting specific issues, in a manner consistent with SETAC principles and values. These projects often culminate in journal articles, Technical Issue Papers (TIPs), symposia and government or inter-government agency briefings.
We are proud to collaboratively work with the following organizations:
- for the Life Cycle Initiative on developing the Global Guidance for Life Cycle Impact Assessment Indicators
- for the Stockholm Convention on the scientific basis for evaluating Persistent Organic Pollutants (POPs)
- for the Minamata Convention on Mercury on the development of a central Mercury Platform
- for the Strategic Approach to International Chemical Management (SAICM) on several environmental management capacity building projects
- for the ad hoc open-ended working group on a science-policy panel to contribute further to the sound management of chemicals and waste and to prevent pollution
- on several standard method workgroups
- on advancing the Adverse Outcomes Pathways approach to chemical assessment and management
- as a member of the High Level Roundtable for Chemical Management and Sustainability to advice the commission on the implementation of the European Green Deal action plan
- as a dissemination partner for Horizon 2020, EU’s key funding program for research and innovation
- on providing the scientific basis for the Environmental Risk Assessment of Chemicals as they were promulgating the Frank R. Lautenberg Chemical Safety for the 21st Century Act, which was signed into law, ending the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA)
We also regularly collaborate with other societies and non-profit organizations, including the American Council of Life Cycle Assessment (ACLCA), Health and Environmental Sciences Institute (HESI), Society of Toxicology (SOT) and International Society of Exposure Assessment (ISES).
