Recently TAUW received the official confirmation from the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) that we are welcomed as a partner for the Global Mercury Partnership.
This is a programme that aims to protect human health and the global environment from the release of mercury and it’s compounds by minimizing and, where feasible, ultimately eliminating anthropogenic mercury releases to air, water and land. The UNEP Global Mercury Partnership is a voluntary and collaborative relationship consisting of stakeholders from governments, intergovernmental organizations, NGOs, private sector, academia and scientific community who are dedicated to reducing mercury pollution and protecting human health and the environment from the impacts of mercury.
TAUW has been involved with the global remediation of Persistent Organic Pollutants (POP) pesticides for nearly three decades. On this topic we use our expertise, workforce, experience and financial resources for responsible use of persistent chemicals such as pesticides. Our worldwide experience gained with POP pesticides combined with our knowledge of remediation and demolition of mercury contaminated sites of our industrial clients makes us a valuable partner for the UNEP Global Mercury Partnership.
Joining the efforts of the UNEP Global Mercury Partnership, TAUW will bring connections to the partnership of a large number of experts focusing on mercury contaminated site management, who can bring value to the goals of the programme via several (international) projects.
