Corporate Sustainability and TRI: Exploring Pollution Prevention (P2) Information
Feb 4 @ 2:00 pm EST – 3:00 pm EST

Do you want to know which companies are taking steps to reduce their environmental footprint in the U.S.? Join this webinar to learn how the Toxics Release Inventory (TRI) Pollution Prevention (P2) Tool can help you identify P2 successes and visually compare environmental performance at both the facility and corporate level.

For the past two years, TRI’s Pollution Prevention (P2) Tool has been the go-to resource for learning what facilities are doing to reduce toxic chemical pollution. And now, all the facility-level P2 and waste management data reported to EPA’s TRI Program is available at the parent company-level as well. This means you can now compare toxic chemical management and greenhouse gas emissions data at the corporate level and see what each company is doing to prevent the release of pollutants to the environment.

This webinar will provide a live demonstration of the newly-expanded TRI P2 Tool and highlight the latest industry- and chemical-level P2 trends featured in the 2013 TRI National Analysis.

Space is limited. Reserve your Webinar seat now at: https://www1.gotomeeting.com/register/312174544

After registering you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the Webinar.
