Worldwide there're abt 4.5 million #women artisanal miners. In many countries, they're the ones leading the way to go #mercuryfree, unafraid of change. These women in Peru are picture perfect examples - they're eagerly learning how to pan effectively to get the most gold yield without using toxic mercury. Artisanal gold mining is the leading source of global mercury emissions. These women are helping us #SolvePollution. Thank you, ladies. #WomensDay #IWD2019

“These factories have been polluting the environment because of all the heavy metals in the e-waste like lead and copper, which can poison the soil and the water ...They also burn the plastic, which brings toxic fumes into the air. So it is very dangerous for the Thai people living near these factories.” #ewaste #pollution #BeatPollution http://ow.ly/s9Rw30kLB7E

Goodbye #Davos18. We're back in our offices today but feeling energized by the conversations and meetings we had at #wef18. Our presentations pushed #pollution up the ladder of issues with this high-powered global audience, and we hope to see more investments in pollution solutions follow to #BeatPollution.
