Mission Statement

BAN works to prevent the globalization of the toxic chemical crisis - toxic trade . We promote global environmental justice and a toxics-free future where no peoples or environments are poisoned or polluted due to callous disregard or lax enforcement of international laws.

Description

The Basel Action Network (BAN) is the world’s only organization focused on confronting the global environmental injustice and economic inefficiency of toxic trade. We are based in Seattle, Washington USA and are a registered 501(c)3 charity in the United States.

We take our name from the Basel Convention - the world’s only international treaty designed to confront toxic trade. Trade in toxic products, wastes or processes, involves using developing countries or the global commons as a place to externalize harm and costs instead of responsibly preventing harm upstream through green design and clean production.

BAN works to expose and confront such exploitation and actively promotes sustainable and just solutions to our consumption and waste-making habits. We work to ensure a toxic-free future for everyone.
