Established in 1998, IPEN, the International Persistent Organic Pollutants (POPs) Elimination Network, is a global network of environmental and public health organizations working to pave the way for a toxics-free future. As an international leader on chemical safety, IPEN raises the profile of sound chemicals management as an economic development strategy, wins increased funding for chemical safety projects at the country level, exposes dangerous chemicals in products, and raises the profile of toxics issues previously not on the agenda for global attention.
Comprised of more than 500 health and environmental public interest organizations in over 100 countries, IPEN is working to eliminate the world's most harmful chemicals to create a toxics-free future. The IPEN Secretariat is a small operation with offices in Berkeley & Los Angeles, CA (5 people) and Göteborg, Sweden (3 people). The Operations & Office Organizer will be based in Berkeley.
