Greenpeace launches Right to Know kit

Our Bureau

Hyderabad , June 21

GREENPEACE, an international environmental activist group, released a `Community Right to Know Kit' here on Monday. The kit is designed to empower communities to demand their right to information. It cites the rights people have to seek information under various laws in India.

According to Greenpeace, past experience has shown that there is a direct correlation between public access to information and environmental quality. Some of the most polluted areas in the world have come about through lack of knowledge about what chemicals are being used and released into the environment.

Public access to information must exist at all levels of industrial production, from production processes to food and product ingredient labelling.
