Greenpeace believes large chemicals firms representing private business interests have led a concerted push to undermine and destroy European Union attempts to protect the public from hazardous chemicals. The report, 'Toxic Lobby: How the chemicals industry is trying to kill REACH', describes how, in an attempt to cripple the proposed reform of EU chemicals law (REACH), the chemicals industry has scared and misled decision-makers by denying the problems of chemical contamination, creating fear over job losses and economic costs, obstructing innovation, and co-opting small and medium enterprises to their disadvantage.
