About the Indiana Partners for Pollution Prevention
The Partners for Pollution Prevention is an organization comprised of Indiana industries, businesses, nonprofit organizations and governmental entities that are interested in pollution prevention as well as the financial and environmental benefits P2 projects can bring. The Partners provide a forum where Indiana businesses can network and exchange ideas about P2 experiences and discuss how P2 fits into current and future IDEM programs. The Partners realize that pollution prevention is the arena where the environment and economics can meet on common ground. The Partners for Pollution Prevention champion pollution prevention and environmental stewardship programs in businesses and organizations by promoting successful practices and approaches to achieve measurable reduction of pollution in Indiana.
In 1996, the Indiana Department of Environmental Management organized the Partners for Pollution Prevention (Partners). These Partners had a proven interest in pollution prevention based upon their involvement in grants, awards, and other programs. The Partners provided a forum to discuss and share pollution prevention successes and to advise IDEM on pollution prevention policies and programs.
Since that time, Partners has grown and consists of approximately 70 organizations. Many members have received Governor's Awards for Environmental Excellence for their outstanding contribution to Indiana's environment. Membership for Indiana companies and facilities is free and voluntary.
About the National Pollution Prevention Roundtable
As the largest membership organization in the United States devoted solely to Pollution Prevention (P2), NPPR acts as a window on the P2 community. The mission of the Roundtable is to provide a national forum for promoting the development, implementation, and evaluation of efforts to avoid, eliminate, or reduce pollution at the source (i.e. source reduction instead of traditional end-of pipe methods). NPPR’s members are comprised of the country’s preeminent P2 experts from regional resource centers, state and local government programs, small business assistance networks, non-profit groups, industry associations, federal agencies, and academia.
ESP focuses on improving Indiana's environment and business climate through innovation and efficient resource allocation. Participating organizations achieve environmental objectives through creating and implementing an environmental management system (EMS). Together, the EMS and the steward's commitment to continual environmental improvement will increase their efficiency, decrease environmental impacts, and may save the business time, money, and resources. Regulatory flexibility incentives earned by members were designed to provide business value, reduce regulatory oversight, allow a shift in resources from compliance driven to achieving results, and provide the member with increased operational flexibility.
