Environmental Innovations Dialogue

Organization(s) New York State Dept. of Environmental Conservation
Project Description The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation’s (NYS DEC) Pollution Prevention Unit hosted a dialogue on innovative environmental management tools at its Albany Headquarters in November 2002. The event was hosted in partnership with the Council of State Governments (CSG) and the Multi State Working Group (MSWG). The dialogue was part of the Policy Academy on Environmental Management Tools, a joint effort of CSG and MSWG that addresses the need for improved information on the effective use of environmental management tools in public policy. Additional sponsorship was provided by Con Edison and the American Chemistry Council. The objective of the dialogue was to advance the understanding of which environmental management tools hold the most promise for improved environmental performance. Further, it is hoped that information gathered from this event will improve the understanding of what actions need to be taken to integrate these tools into the environmental protection framework.

Approximately 70 experts in environmental management participated in the event, including representatives from the United Kingdom and Canada. The dialogue consisted of four morning plenary sessions, where participants presented some examples of how environmental management tools can be applied, as well as some of the lessons learned from past applications. These plenary sessions were followed by four afternoon discussion groups, with participants assigned to one of these four groups. Each of the discussions looked at a different area where innovative approaches may hold promise. For more information visit: www.dec.state.ny.us/website/ppu/dialmain.html.
