National Pollution Prevention Results

Organization(s) National P2 Results Task Force
Project Description A National Pollution Prevention Results Task Force was formed in 2003 to develop a National Pollution Prevention (P2) Results Data System, which can aggregate P2 results data at the regional and national levels. Membership in the Task Force is comprised of representatives from state P2 programs, EPA Headquarters and Regions, P2 Resource Exchange Centers (P2Rx), and the National Pollution Prevention Roundtable (NPPR).

The vision of the National P2 Results Data System (the System) is creation of an efficient and effective way of analyzing and presenting the results of P2 for the regions and the entire country. It will be based on data that is collected, managed, and synthesized by individual state and local programs, non-profits, companies, and other P2 organizations. Under this system the P2Rx Regional Centers will aggregate P2 data for their regions and share this with NPPR and others for use in preparing a biennial report on the national progress of P2.

Underlying this framework is a general agreement among the participants on a core set of P2 measures in the form of a "Data Dictionary." The measures in the dictionary have been compiled from several P2 data systems and include a range of outcome, behavior change, and activity metrics. They are not meant to be mandatory, and, most likely, many P2 programs will only be able to report on some of these measures.

This System will not be designed to directly address each individual program's effectiveness; rather the focus is on the effectiveness of P2 overall, particularly environmental, public health, and economic outcomes. A related goal is to enhance collaboration among P2 programs in collecting and compiling useful measurement data to improve overall effectiveness of P2 strategies.

Each regional P2Rx Center may include additional data elements in their aggregation tool beyond what is needed to report to the national system. These data elements may contain data from such activities as materials reuse, recycling, or energy recovery. Reporting of data for these activities can be aggregated at the regional level.

Each state or local program may collect and analyze data elements that are appropriate for their particular program. The information on the data elements that the state and local programs provide to their regional center will be determined through agreement between the state and local programs and the regional P2Rx Center.

The following data flow diagram shows how the data will move through the proposed system.
