EPA invites your organization to earn national recognition and incentives, while benefiting your bottom line, by participating in any of the following free, voluntary partnerships. These programs assist public and private entities with greening many different types of activities, resulting in less pollution and often significantly reducing operating costs at the same time. EPA can provide step-by-step guidance on implementation as well as public recognition for environmental benefits.

National Partnership for Environmental Priorities (NPEP)

wastewise

The NPEP program partners with public and private organizations to reduce the use or release of any of 31 Priority Chemicals (PCs). NPEP is part of EPA's National Waste Minimization Program and the Resource Conservation Challenge, a national effort to conserve natural resources and energy by managing materials more efficiently.

GreenScapes

wastewise

Landscaping is used everyday throughout the world to make our developed communities more aesthetically pleasing. While landscaping makes our yards and parks more visually enjoyable, it often has considerable economical and environmental costs. By making simple changes to these landscapes to make them "GreenScapes," one can save time, money and resources while still preventing pollution.

Environmental Management System (EMS)

wastewise

Encourage business to adopt EMS - EMS is a continual cycle of planning, implementing, and reviewing activities to meet environmental regulations and improve a facility's overall performance. This includes non-regulated environmental impacts like energy use, carbon dioxide emissions, and purchase and use of products that have less impact on the environment. With an EMS, a facility's environmental impacts become the responsibility of all employees and managers.

Industrial Materials Recycling Partnerships

wastewise

These EPA programs promote the reuse of industrial waste materials:

Coal Combustion Products Partnership (C2P2)
Coal combustion products (CCP's) are the byproducts generated from burning coal in coal-fired power plants such as fly ash and bottom ash. These byproducts can be reused as construction materials in highways and buildings. As an example, the Los Angeles County Community College District received a C2P2 award from EPA for using CCP's in a $2.2 billion campus-wide modernization project.
