For more than a decade now, EPA has joined governments, communities and citizens to encourage Pollution Prevention (P2) efforts.  Pollution prevention measures can protect the environment before pollution even begins, save energy and natural resources and leave our homes, schools and workplaces cleaner and safer.  Recycling is great, but preventing pollution in the first place saves money and protects the environment.

Don't waste your chance to prevent pollution.

What is E3?

E3 stands for Economy, Energy, and Environment. It is a coordinated federal and local technical assistance initiative that helps communities work with their manufacturing base to provide assistance on sustainability focus areas. The E3 initiative is gaining momentum nationally by supporting manufacturing leadership through collaboration with manufacturers, utilities, state and local governments as well as other federal agencies.

EPA Region 3 has been working with VA, WVA, and PA by convening state projects teams which are progressing forward. The new and improved E3 Initiative website is now live at http://www.e3.gov which features tools and resources available, and an easy to review layout. E3 is lead by the Office of Chemical Safety and Pollution Prevention.
