The LEAD Group is always vigilant to ensure that no leaded petrol in the world contains Australian lead. If Australian lead ends up in leaded petrol or in paint, especially house paint, it tarnishes the green credentials of the Australian mining industry.

Lead damages the brain, reduces longevity and increases crime. Leaded petrol has caused more lead exposure for humans than any other use of lead. Leaded petrol is well past its ‘use by date’ but companies that still profit from its production are not volunteering to end the deadly leaded petrol era and put people before profits.

The LEAD Group aims to achieve the end of leaded petrol as soon as possible.

To read more on the issue by The LEAD Group Inc. see our LEAD Action News newsletter Who will end the leaded petrol death trade?, our chronology of leaded gasoline history and our fact sheet on the issue. Also see our recent Nomination of Innospec for the 2013 Public Eye Awards, seven letters of support for it, and a positive appraisal of the nomination, in LEAD Action News vol 14 no 1 - Lead Safe World Project Launch: Inaugural International Lead Poisoning Prevention Week of Action 20-26 October 2013

Please donate now. Your assistance could create a cleaner fuelled world by helping in the final push for an end to leaded gasoline.

Any money raised through this appeal will be directly used for wages, web-publication on the issue, travel and other expenses of meetings associated with coming to agreement with industry in the shortest timeframe possible.

Grill'd Local Matters

Every month, Grill’d donates $500 to local groups and asks their customers to decide who the money goes to.

When customers buy a burger, they receive a token to put into one of 3 jars representing different groups. Whoever has the most tokens at the end of the month receives $300. The other two groups receive $100 each.

On Friday 30 August 2013, Elizabeth O’Brien, President of The LEAD Group went down to Grill'd Crown St located at 241 Crown St Darlinghurst NSW 2010, and was given a delicious free lunch and a cheque for $300!


The LEAD Group Inc is endorsed as an Income Tax Exempt Charitable entity under subdivision 50-B of the Income Tax Assessment Act 1997.
The Lead Education and Abatement Fund (L.E.A.F) is a public fund listed on the Register of Environmental Organisations under Item 6.1.1 of subsection 30-55(1) of the Income Tax Assessment Act 1997 and is endorsed as a Deductible Gift Recipient under subdivision 30-BA of the Income Tax Assessment Act 1997.

The LEAD Group Inc. currently receives no financial support from the Australian federal Department of the Environment, previously known as the Department of Sustainability, Environment, Water, Population and Communities (DSEWPaC). DSEWPaC provided funding for 6 years ending 30th June 2013. The fate of our Global Lead Advice and Support Service (GLASS) is uncertain, so we have launched a new Lead Safe World Project including a website at www.leadsafeworld.com and we are looking for companies and other organisations to become Lead Safe World Partners and contribute to building up solutions to lead problems on the new site, but also to resourcing GLASS – for the good of all.
