Toxics Link, a not-for-profit body registered in New Delhi, India, is an initiative of The Just Environment Charitable Trust. It emerged from the critical need to address knowledge gaps relating to the issues of toxicity and waste and their impacts on the environment and human health, especially on vulnerable and marginalised communities.

The organisation generates credible knowledge based on science and field research to create a more comprehensive understanding and debate amongst all stakeholders and to implement on-ground sustainable solutions. We work across domains including, Waste and Sustainability, Chemicals and Health, and Information & Communication.

Our persistent engagements with diverse stakeholders have helped develop several relevant policies, initiatives, and standards, both nationally and internationally. It has resulted in changes in practices and processes to improve the lives of Indian citizens and other developing countries. We work with multiple national and global partners to mutually deepen capacity and strengthen the sector.
