CHEM Trust collaborates with a wide range of organisations, including civil society organisations, at EU level, within the UK and internationally.
For example, many of our policy submissions are joint with other organisations in the EU or around the world.

- We also provide advice to organisations such as Friends of the Earth and WWF-UK.
