The Environment Working Group actively monitors, studies and disseminates knowledge, data and best practices related to environmental contaminant management, the management of allergy and asthma, emerging (and re-emerging) environmental health risks and water sanitation and purification. By bringing together fractious national and international data, the working group helps parents, medical practitioners, business leaders, NGO leaders and institutions create safer and more accommodating environments for children and youth.
