International POPs Elimination Network

Last Updated on 12 March 2012

150150stockholm1.jpgThe International POPs Elimination Network (IPEN) is a global network of more than 600 public interest non-governmental organizations working together for the elimination of persistent organic pollutants, on an expedited yet socially equitable basis. This mission includes achieving a world in which all chemicals are produced and used in ways that eliminate significant adverse effects on human health and the environment, and where persistent organic pollutants (POPs) and chemicals of equivalent concern no longer pollute our local and global environments, and no longer contaminate our communities, our food, our bodies, or the bodies of our children and future generations.

The participating organisations of IPEN are those NGOs who have endorsed the IPEN Stockholm Declaration and the IPEN Dubai Declaration for a Toxic Free Future. They call upon all government and stakeholders to work together to reform chemicals assessment and management, laws, policies and practices to achieve a Toxics-Free Future by 2020 in all countries. 

In addition to the organizations names and country of origin, further contact information may be available from the IPEN Secretariat from an email to  ipen[at]ipen.org.

NTN was first formed in 1993 and since then has grown as a national network to support community and environmental organisations across Australia, New Zealand and the South Pacific.

NTN provides non-government organisations (NGOs) with a national and international voice on chemical and toxics issues. As the Australian focal point for the International POPs Elimination Network (IPEN), NTN hosts the international IPEN working group on community monitoring and body burden and works towards the full implementation of the Stockholm Convention on Persistent Organic Pollutants (POPs) 2001 and other global chemical conventions.

Internationally, NTN has represented Australian and global NGOs at the OECD Chemical Joint Meetings and is actively involved in the Intergovernmental Forum on Chemical Safety (IFCS) providing an Australian focal point for their INFOCAP information and capacity building program.

Planet Ark
Planet Ark works to show people the many ways they can reduce their day to day impact on the environment - at home, at work and in the community.Planet Ark is non-political and endeavours to work with whichever government is in office to bring about environmental change. Planet Ark is non-confrontational and does not protest or hold demonstrations. Instead it aims to appeal to the general public who perhaps feel uncomfortable protesting, but none the less still want to help the environment.
Planet Ark is a not-for-profit organisation. Planet Ark is largely funded by corporate sponsorship working in partnership with businesses and organisations that want to help bring about real environmental change. Planet Ark asks for lifestyle change, not loose change! When Planet Ark began it was decided not to seek public membership or subscriptions. Rather than asking for money, this has given the freedom in public education campaigns to focus on showing people the simple changes they can make in their lives that will lessen their impact on the environment.
