For over a decade, the P2 community coordinated the P2 Results Task Force, a national forum that facilitated the exchange of information and data on P2 results. In 2012, the Task Force published the “National P2 Results Data System 2010-2012” which presents a summary of national results from government agencies involved in promoting P2 approaches.
Check out your state’s activities and measurable reductions in the Report: P2 Results 2010 – 2012. You won’t want to miss learning about approaches you could apply to your program today.
Summary of Results
From 2010-2012, approximately 90 P2 programs in the U.S. reported almost $5.4 billion in economic benefits; more than 8.9 billion pounds of pollution minimized or eliminated; approximately 8.8 billion gallons of water conserved; energy usage reduced by 1.4 billion kilowatts; over 1.7 billion pounds of greenhouse gases (GHG) no longer being released into the earth’s atmosphere associated with P2 activities. Now that’s something to share!
Other findings include:
- over 29,999 attendees at P2-themed training events held;
- more than 10,000 site visits conducted;
- more than 240 environmental management systems developed; and
- more than 350 P2-related suggestions implemented by more than 3,000 clients.
These are just some of the outstanding outcome, activity, and behavioral results that government, industry, commercial, academic, and other pollution prevention (P2) programs achieved from 2010-12, that you can still use now.
