GLRPPR Sector Resource: Nano Risk Framework: A Partnership of Environmental Defense and DuPont

Title:
Nano Risk Framework: A Partnership of Environmental Defense and DuPont

Abstract:
In June 2005, DuPont CEO Chad Holliday and Environmental Defense President Fred Krupp jointly called for broad collaboration by interested stakeholders to identify and address potential environmental, health, and safety risks of nanotechnology. Soon after, Environmental Defense and DuPont entered into a partnership to develop the Nano Risk Framework. The Framework was created by a multidisciplinary team from both organizations, including experts in biochemistry, toxicology, environmental sciences and engineering, medicine, occupational safety and health, environmental law and regulations, product development, and business development.
