Performance Track Initiative

Organization(s) Environmental Protection Agency - Region 1
Project Description Members of EPA's Performance Track initiative use environmental management systems (EMSs), set specific goals to minimize their environmental footprint, report annually on their progress, and perform community outreach. During the years 2001-2004, New England Performance Track facilities collectively decreased energy use by more than 92,000 million BTUs, reduced air emissions by more than 260,000 tons, lowered water consumption by 651 million gallons, slashed materials use by almost 5,800 tons, and cut solid waste by nearly 4,100 tons. Additionally, those that accepted the New England "Energy Challenge" decreased greenhouse gas emissions by more than 9,400 million tons of CO2 equivalents in 2004, the first year of the Challenge.

Currently there are 39 New England facilities in the program; the next enrollment period is April 1 - May 31, 2006.
