    FEATURED CAMPAIGN

    STOP EXPORTING BANNED PESTICIDES

    What’s the issue?

    Investigations have revealed that in 2020 the UK Government permitted the export of over 12,000 tonnes of UK-manufactured ‘Banned Pesticides’, despite these chemicals being banned for use in the UK due to the severe risks they pose to human health and the environment . However, loopholes in international trade law are allowing for companies such as Syngenta to manufacture these pesticides – namely the toxic herbicide Paraquat – and export them to countries where they are permitted for use.

    .

    What are we doing?

    We’ve written to key Government departments asking them to put an end to the double standards, to stop granting export licenses for toxic pesticides banned for use in the UK and to put measures in place to protect UK food import standards when it comes to toxic pesticide residues.

    Click here to find out more about the campaign and what you can do to take action.
