Reg Integration Topic Hub - Reasons for Change

  • Promoting pollution prevention as an alternative to pollution control will improve environmental conditions
  • Eliminating waste and emissions at the source results in less government oversight of an industrial facility's environmental activities
  • Facilities may realize significant cost savings by reducing or eliminating the need for treatment and disposal of solid and hazardous waste. Permit fees may be reduced and emissions credits may be marketable
  • An organization may develop a new perspective on demonstrating environmental progress?from bean counting and single media permitting?to the reduction or elimination of pollution at the source
