We provide decision support and expertise in the work towards a Non-Toxic Environment in Sweden. The data from our monitoring programmes contributes to the overall picture of the environmental status regarding hazardous substances.  We also assess the risks with hazardous substances and their effects, and support the work with Sweden's international comittments on environmental pollutants.
