Directory of Innovative Initiatives
Note: EPA no longer updates this information, but it may be useful as a reference or resource.
Environmental innovation can take many forms, and be characterized in many ways. The Directory of Innovative Initiatives provides access to a wide range of innovations at EPA. Users can select innovations that address specific environmental media, that are multi-media in scope, or that relate to environmental tools or functions. Access is also provided to innovations that are evolving at the regional level. This listing is not a complete collection, however, NCEI continues adding new information as it becomes available.
In addition, a link is provided to the Environmental Innovation Portfolio. This resource serves as a quick navigational guide to an expanding variety of innovative strategies and practices available to public environmental agencies. The Portfolio
- categorizes the types of strategies that environmental agencies can use to reap better results;
- highlights promising projects as examples of approaches that can be adopted or adapted;
- promotes networking among people working on similar problems who can benefit from shared experiences.
