The aim of the Non-Toxic Environment Programme is to give an overall picture of Sweden's environmental status in relation to the occurrence and impact of hazardous substances that are currently the subject of environmental policy. The programme should provide data on which to base achievement of the Non-Toxic Environment environmental objective, and for action taken to ensure that environmental impacts remain within acceptable limits. A further aim is that the programme should provide expertise in the context of international conventions and the incorporation of EU directives on environmental pollutants.
The Centre for Chemical Pesticides (CKB) at SLU is pre-eminent in Sweden when it comes to knowledge about pesticides in agriculture and forestry.
