Since 1992, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has forged voluntary partnerships with thousands of companies and other enterprises to promote cost-effective ways to increase energy efficiency and reduce air pollution. EPA has worked with these partners to remove market barriers by developing tools, offering technical assistance, and serving as a credible voice in defining and conveying best practices.
In total, the partnerships are estimated to have saved $39 billion and avoided 425 million metric tons of greenhouse gases in 2015, and saved $703 billion and avoided over 4.2 billion metric tons of greenhouse gases cumulatively since 1992.
