As GE explores new ways of applying nanotechnology to solving some of the world’s most pressing challenges, we recognize the need to understand and address possible unintended effects of nanotechnology on human health and the environment..

To that end, GE has engaged in:

  • Ongoing internal education and stewardship addressing environmental, health and safety (EHS) aspects of nanotechnology, including development of common identification, evaluation, compliance and management approaches across the Company
  • Actively participating in industry consortia and forums dedicated to nanotechnology issues and to the establishment of standards that address terminology, nomenclature, metrology and other relevant EHS topics for nanotechnology
