Per-and polyfluoroalkyl substances, also known as PFAS or “forever chemicals”, have come into the spotlight recently, with the Biden administration making “historic” legislative change in April to limit the dangerous amount of these chemicals found in drinking water in the United States. Forever chemicals are in Australia as well, threatening the health of our communities and environment…so what are we doing about it? 

On 23 July, NorthStar Impact Funds will hold a webinar with a panel of leading experts to discuss how we’re addressing forever chemicals in Australia and why it could be a multi-billion dollar opportunity. 

When: Tue, 23 July, 11:00 am – 12:00 pm AEST

Where: Online event
