Environmental Results Program
Note: EPA no longer updates this information, but it may be useful as a reference or resource.
The Environmental Results Program (ERP) is an integrated approach to addressing environmental problems associated with various business sectors and other groups having large numbers of small facilities. While individual facilities within these groups may release small amounts of pollution, the aggregate impact can be significant.
The Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection developed ERP over 10 years ago, in the midst of department-wide budget cuts, as a cost-effective strategy to improve and measure the performance of such groups. More than one-third of U.S. states have now developed or are implementing at least one ERP. Increasingly, states are also exploring new ways of applying ERP components.
