Pollution prevention (P2) is one of the cornerstones of an ISO 14001 certified environmental management system (EMS). P2 has been evolving from a specialized environmental initiative to a mainstream business activity. P2 offers significant benefits to an industrial operation and can result in significant cost savings affecting the bottom line of the organization. P2 activities can also result in a safer work environment. The US EPA developed a guidance manual on pollution prevention. This course is based upon the US EPA document “An Organizational Guide to Pollution Prevention”, EPA Document No. EPA 625-R-01-003, August 2001. A companion CD is available from the US EPA as document number EPA 625-C-01-003. This CD provides additional handbooks, manuals, worksheets and checklists and links to other P2 websites. It is not provided as a part of the course material.
This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
