ABSTRACT

Business Guide to U.S. EPA Climate Partnership Programs [June 2008]   [open pdf - 1MB]

This United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) report outlines partnership programs for businesses by industry. "EPA Partnership Programs offer participating companies a wide variety of valuable services and resources to reduce GHGs. By joining an EPA Partnership Program, a business frequently gains access not just to EPA resources and services but often those of many other organizations. EPA is one of the few environmental bodies with national reach. EPA regional offices, laboratories, grantees, and consultants routinely participate in EPA Partnership Programs targeting the business community. Through these programs, EPA has forged thousands of collaborative partnerships with advocacy organizations, research organizations, community groups, business associations, professional associations, utilities, universities, schools, and state and local governments. EPA Partnership Programs offer partners a wide variety of valuable services and resources to reduce GHG emissions. Most programs offer technical assistance, professional networking, and public recognition. Many offer financial and environmental analysis tools, training, seminars, guidebooks, toolkits, and environmental performance bench marking. Others help businesses identify potential buyers and sellers of environmentally superior products and connect them to environmental financing opportunities. EPA is also one of the few U.S. bodies with environmental regulatory powers at the federal level. As more and more states adopt new and mandatory climate policies and as climate policy continues to evolve at the federal level, EPA is in a unique position to help business partners prepare for these changes."
