The Society of Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry (SETAC) is a global not-for-profit society that supports the protection and management of a sustainable environment and examines the impact of chemicals and technology on our environment. SETAC has around 5500 members worldwide, made up of professionals from a range of backgrounds, from chemistry, biology and ecology to atmospheric, health and earth sciences.

This year’s theme is environmental quality through transdisciplinary collaboration and will highlight the importance of an interdisciplinary approach to managing key environmental issues. The meeting is expected to attract experts from academia, industry and government to share recent scientific knowledge, improve environmental risk assessment practices, and influence current and emerging regulatory policies.
