Celebrating a Win-Win: 30 Years of Progress Under the Pollution Prevention Act
NOVEMBER 5, 2020
Assistant Administrator for the Office of Chemical Safety and Pollution Prevention. On this day in 1990, a new era was ushered in for EPA and the nation when the Pollution Prevention (P2) Act was signed into law. The act gave the agency new tools to join with states, tribes, and communities to prevent pollution before it happens. Perhaps the most impactful and collaborative program to grow out of the P2 Act is EPA’s P2 Grants Program.
