The Enviresearch Foundation has been established following the work and success of Enviresearch Limited, a consulting company which supports chemical companies to produce safe and effective products in Europe. The shareholders of the company have decided to return some of these benefits to society at large, by providing funding for research and community engagement in a way that acknowledges the sources of the money. Each year, the foundation will provide funding support to scientific research into sustainable, chemical safety and to promote community engagement activities in environmental science.
