GLRPPR Sector Resource: Measuring Pollution Prevention

Title:
Measuring Pollution Prevention

Abstract:
Measuring results is an essential component of any successful P2 program and is one way to determine the success of a technical assistance or training effort. Different types of activities will lead to different outcomes or results of P2 program activities. Outcomes may be knowledge-based, behavioral, health-related, or environmental in nature. Ultimately these outcomes can lead to improvements in environmental or environmentally-based health-risk conditions. Short-term P2 outcomes reflect changes in knowledge, attitude or skills, for example: increased awareness of P2 practices or increased knowledge of how to implement P2 options. Intermediate outcomes include adoption of P2 practices or developing a P2 plan. Ultimately these changes can result long-term outcomes such as conservation of natural resources, decreased exposure to toxics, decreased release of toxics to the environment, and cost savings. Includes links to EPA's P2 Greenhouse Gas and Cost Savings calculators.
