Businesses have a large role to play in reducing waste,
pollution and impacts on global climate change.
The best way to reduce waste and other pollution is to avoid
producing it in the first place. Pollution prevention is any
activity that avoids, eliminates, or reduces the creation of
pollutants at the source. The benefits to your business are:
- Reduced operating costs
- Reduced compliance costs
- Reduced liability
- Increased productivity
- Increased marketability as a "green" business; and
- Even possibly increased profits.

sustainable and earth-friendly operations.
