Environmental Justice

Our definition of environmental justice has two parts. First, that the environment should be equally clean and safe for everyone, regardless of economic, social or geographical status. And second, that the burden of the consumption of the wealthy should not be borne by the poor.

Green Jobs

Green jobs are not only jobs with a positive environmental output and impact through products or services, but also decent jobs, as defined by the ILO. The ILO defines decent work as follows: Decent work sums up the aspirations of people in their working lives. It involves opportunities for work that is productive and delivers a fair income, security in the workplace and social protection for families, better prospects for personal development and social integration, freedom for people to express their concerns, organize and participate in the decisions that affect their lives and equality of opportunity and treatment for all women and men.


Toxins—toxic chemicals or products—are substances with the ability (or property) to produce harmful or lethal effects on humans and/or the environment during their lifecycles. Lead in paints, mercury in thermometers and some additives in plastics are examples of toxins.
