The other goals are protecting water, advancing sustainable development and community clean-up, and enforcing environmental laws. The goals for climate change include reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions through energy efficiency and other measures....

Investment and environmental groups Green Century Funds (Boston) and As You Sow (San Francisco) have issued a consumer “report card” tallying food, beverage and retail companies’ commitment to phasing out bisphenol A (BPA). The “Seeking Safer Packaging 2010” report gives the highest scores to companies that have begun using BPA-free can lining for certain products and that have a timeline for eliminating BPA from all of its packaging products. Some of the largest corporations, including Coca-Cola, Del Monte, and Walmart, were among the lowest ranked firms because they “do not commit to phasing out the chemical, are not funding the exploration of substitutes, and fail to sufficiently disclose information about how they are addressing consumer concerns on the issue.”...

A European Food Safety Authority (EFSA; Brussels) advisory panel has concluded there is no scientific data to support revising its Tolerable Daily Intake (TDI) level for bisphenol A (BPA) in food packaging. EFSA’s review of BPA examines studies conducted between 2007 and July 2010, and determines that those studies showing potential adverse health effects linked to BPA exposure in laboratory animals could not be considered valid due to methodological shortcomings. However, a minority opinion by one panel member states that the current TDI should be considered temporary and that more robust data is needed to reduce the uncertainties of the current TDI....

U.S. EPA says it has asked nine natural gas services providers to voluntarily disclose data on chemicals used in hydraulic fracturing, or fracking. EPA says the data is integral to a broad scientific study now underway by the agency to determine whether hydraulic fracturing has an impact on water quality for residents living in the vicinity of hydraulic fracturing wells. EPA's voluntary submission request suggests that there could be legal consequences for those firms which do not cooperate, however....
