Addressing mercury releases to the environment 2. Addressing mercury uses in products and processes 3. Managing commodity-grade mercury supplies 4. Communicating risks to the public 5. Addressing international mercury sources 6. Conducting mercury research and monitoring Success in reducing risks associated with mercury exposure and mercury pollution in the domestic and global ecosystem will depend on pursuing all six of these actions simultaneously.
