Persistent organic pollutants (POPs) are a small group of organic chemicals exhibiting the combined properties of persistence, bioaccumulation, toxicity, and long-range environmental transport. This small group of pollutants encapsulates the genesis and development of pollution awareness in the United States. On May 23, 2001, the United States joined 90 other nations in signing the Stockholm Convention on Persistent Organic Pollutants. Under the Convention, countries commit to reduce and/or eliminate the production, use, and release of the 12 POPs of greatest concern to the global community and to establish a mechanism by which additional chemicals may be added to the treaty in the future. This report is directed toward educating decisionmakers, academia, and the public on the science underpinning this global action, focusing on the 12 priority substances or substance groups, commonly known as the 'dirty dozen.'
