Greenpeace activists seal off a discharge pipe from the Unilever-RFM compound in the Philippines. A recent investigation found that it discharges various toxic and persistent organic chemicals that flows directly into the Marikina River and onwards to Laguna lake.


We are urging industries to shift to clean production processes and for the speedy adoption of a pollution disclosure system, such as a Pollution Release and Transfer Register (PRTR), which institutionalises a community's right-to-know about the toxic chemicals in their area.
