The GEF is charged with financing the elimination of the most harmful chemicals, which are covered by the Stockholm Convention, the Minamata Convention, and the Montreal Protocol. The GEF also supports the Strategic Approach to International Chemicals Management (SAICM), the United Nations' policy framework to promote chemical safety around the world.

From the pilot phase of the GEF up to March 2022, over $2 billion has been programmed to support work on chemicals and waste in developing countries and countries with economies in transition.
