Reminder: P2 Week is September 15 - 21!
2013 P2 Week

Pollution Prevention Week is an annual event designed to draw attention to the various P2 programs and successes across the nation. This year, there are a number of events taking place across the country, and companies and organizations are encouraged to use P2 Week as an opportunity to remind employees about their own P2 programs and goals. 

 

As part of P2 Week, the National Pollution Prevention Roundtable will host a "P2 Pioneers" webinar on September 19 at 1 pm. The webinar is designed to look back at the P2 movement and its evolution. It will address the evolution of the P2 assessment and skill sets needed, the emergence of voluntary programs, utilizing a management systems approach, improved partnership development, and the stabilization and expansion of performance metrics.
