Organisation profile

Pesticide Action Network UK (PAN UK) is the only UK charity focused on tackling the problems caused by pesticides and promoting safe and sustainable alternatives to pesticides in agriculture, urban areas, homes and gardens.
 
Our work includes campaigning for change in policy and practices at home and overseas, co-ordinating projects in the developing world which help smallholder farming communities escape ill-health and poverty caused by pesticides, and contributing our wealth of scientific and technical expertise to the work of other organisations who share our aims.

PAN UK believes it is possible to:

  • eliminate the use of hazardous pesticides, 
  • to reduce dependence on pesticides and to
  • increase the use of sustainable alternatives to chemical pest control in agriculture, urban areas, public health and homes and gardens.
