What is ChemTRAC?
ChemTRAC is a program to track priority substances (chemicals) in industries. This program is designed to increase public awareness of priority substances (chemicals) and reduce pollution from industrial and commercial sources. It can be divided into three main areas:
- The Environmental Reporting and Disclosure Bylaw, which requires businesses to track and report their manufacturing, use and release of priority chemicals
- ChemTRAC’s interactive map which provides neighborhood-specific chemical data of businesses
- The greening of businesses through pollution prevention and innovation.
