The main aim of the Environment and Health Strategy, launched by the European Commission in June 2003, is to achieve a better understanding of the complex relationship between environment and health and to identify and reduce diseases caused by environmental factors. This so-called SCALE initiative focuses on five elements: Science, children, awareness, legislation, and evaluation.

The Strategy will be implemented in cycles. One focus of the first cycle, 2004 - 2010, will be on endocrine disrupting effects of chemicals. Extensive consultations with experts and stakeholders from the environment, health and research fields in all parts of the enlarged Europe have taken place and an Action Plan has been published, in which a number of priority research actions are described. It is published on the DG Environment website dedicated to this strategy.
