The Environmental Sustainability Resource Center (ESRC) along with the Pollution Prevention Resource Exchange (P2Rx™), formerly a national network of regional information centers, is no longer an active pollution prevention (P2) resource as a result of the U.S. EPA eliminating the funding for the Pollution Prevention Information Network (PPIN).

Environmental Sustainability in EPA Regions 3 and 4
The Kentucky Pollution Prevention Center (KPPC) began to receive this funding back in 2011 to assume administration of the operational objectives of the ESRC from the North Carolina Department of Natural Resources.

The objectives of the ESRC have been to provide technical environmental sustainability information and training to industrial service providers in EPA Regions 3 & 4. Region 3 includes Virginia, West Virginia, Pennsylvania, D.C., Delaware and Maryland. Region 4 includes Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina and Tennessee.

A key resource that emerged from the PPIN funding and has evolved over the years has been the ESRC website which represents and makes available a collection of sustainability and pollution prevention resources. This web content will remain available for a short time after the funding ends while KPPC works to evaluate and migrate valuable web content and products to the website.

Web content on the ESRC website will no longer be maintained as the site is now static as of October 1, 2018. A status of when the ESRC website will be shutting down will be provided once content migration to the KPPC website has been completed.
