Global Alliance to Eliminate Lead Paint


Environmental Aspects


Environment AspectsThe objective is to establish global common guidelines regarding the best environmental practices using best available technologies that are applicable to all countries regarding lead content in paint and how to minimize or eliminate exposures from lead in paint.

 Normal weathering as well as repair, renovation, and painting activities that disturb lead paint can contribute to lead loadings in soil and dust. Such increased lead concentrations in soil or nearby water sources can affect the health of aquatic and terrestrial animal life.
