Top Ten Toxic Threats 2013

Cleanup, Progress, and Ongoing Challenges

This 2013 report is the eighth in an annual series of reports released by Green Cross Switzerland and Blacksmith Institute. Previous reports have highlighted some of the world’s worst polluted places, presented examples of successful cleanup projects, and outlined the world’s worst pollution problems.

This year’s report takes a look at the progress made in dealing with some of the world’s worst polluted places and sets this against the ongoing identification of thousands more, less notorious, polluted places.

This examination of industries, pollutants, and sites is based on data collected by Green Cross Switzerland and Blacksmith Institute and on industry information, public sources, and the scientific literature.
