Through its Sector Strategies Division, this center promotes a systematic and collaborative approach to sector-based environmental protection. The center develops and coordinates implementation of cross-agency strategies to improve environmental performance of entire sectors. The NCEI Sector Strategies Program:

  • Identifies barriers to performance improvement and, in conjunction with trade groups and other stakeholders, explores innovative ways to overcome those barriers
  • Works with EPA programs and regions, and state and local governments to make changes in regulatory permitting and enforcement assistance programs that will help businesses improve performance
  • Promotes Environmental Management Systems and assists trade groups in advocacy of their EMS development and use by companies
  • Develops improved indicators, data, and data collection strategies to measure environmental performance sectorwide
  • Reports annually on Sector Strategies Program progress
  • Provides a staff-level point of contact for each industry participating in the program
