Greenpeace protests at the presentation of the Responsible Care award by the chemical industry (VNCI) in Rotterdam. Activists unfurl an enormous banner reading 'You don't care'. The Responsible Care award rewards companies for environmental adjustments in their operational management, like placing a purification filter or energy saving. While the chemical industry is responsible for the worldwide spread of a group of highly toxic substances, so-called POP's (Persistent Organic Pollutants). Greenpeace wants that the industry stops the production of POP's and not hides behind spurious solutions. In 1998 the European Ministers of Environment have already listed the POP's, that have to disappear. However the toxic POP's are still produced and used on a large scale by chemical companies, like AKZO, Dow Chemicals, Broomchemie, Atofina and Exxon. POP's do not decompose readily or quickly in the environment and they cover long distances in the environment and can be found in household dust, but also at the North Pole. They accumulate in the fatty of humans and animals and are often hormone disrupting.
