Environmental Security and Sustainability
Our practical projects responsibly and safely dispose of hazardous materials and toxins, thereby significantly reducing their exposure to water, air and soil and minimizing their impact on human health and the environment. Moreover, GCI supports international treaties, such as the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons, advocating for the elimination of those weapons with the greatest potential to harm people and the environment.
