The Right to Live and Work in a Healthy Environment
TIFO works with vulnerable mining and recycling communities to improve environmental health. We recognize the socio-economic realities in these communities; people need jobs, society needs heavy metals, and sustainable and equitable solutions require on meaningful community involvement. TIFO prioritizes collaboration with local leaders, governments, and NGOs to develop and implement solutions that mitigate health risks and promote responsible environmental practices.
