Smart environmental protection creates jobs. It creates a market for clean technology and then drives innovation and invention – new products for that market. The EPA promotes innovation that eliminates or significantly reduces the use of toxic substances and exposure to pollutants in the environment and that also promotes growth of the American economy. Building upon the EPA’s history of scientific and technological expertise, the Agency seeks out prospective technological advances that have the greatest potential to achieve environmental benefits. The Agency’s goal is to speed the design, development and deployment of the next generation of environmental technologies, creating a cleaner environment and a stronger economy for our nation and the world.
