POLLUTION PREVENTION (P2)
P2 is our core ethic. PPRC uses P2 to help businesses and organizations rethink their processes, equipment, and materials - achieving required performance while saving money and reducing environmental impact.
We recognize and value the different perspectives of diverse stakeholders and communities. PPRC fosters national, regional, and local partnerships and collaboration to engage more people in achieving their human health and environmental goals.
PPRC conducts pollution prevention assessments and training that raise awareness of a business’ environmental footprint, and potential solutions to environmental challenges. PPRC is available to directly assist with implementation of selected improvement opportunities.
