Former RSC President appointed Chair of UK Chemicals Stakeholder Forum

11 July 2013

Former RSC President, Professor David Phillips, today takes up his position as as Chair of the UK Chemicals Stakeholder Forum (UKCSF).
The UKCSF is a Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) forum that advises government on how the industry should reduce the risks from hazardous chemicals to the environment, and to human health through the environment.
Professor Phillips said: "I am delighted to have been appointed as Chair of the UKCSF. The forum has an important role to play in advising the government, based on sound science and in the public interest, on how best to manage risk to the environment and human health from the production and use of chemicals.
"I'm particularly looking forward to working with forum members on how we can improve sustainability in the chemicals industry, both to reduce the impact of industry on the environment and to boost business through lower costs."
