The Danish Ecological Council, an environmental public interest group, has published a second version of their landmark 2006 booklet “Hazardous chemicals can be substituted”. The benefits of hazardous chemicals substitution for both companies and public health are presented. The publication describes the experiences of a range of companies (14 Danish, 5 foreign) that have successfully undertaken substitution processes. These exemplify and reinforce the feasibility and benefits of such actions in a highly competitive market.
