Clean Energy - Clean energy is energy derived from highly efficient, clean technologies, including renewable, "green" power, and combined heat and power. The EPA’s Clean Energy Programs are designed to improve the national foundation of information on Clean Energy by creating networks between the public and private sector, providing technical assistance, and offering recognition of environmental leaders that adopt Clean Energy practices.
Climate Leaders Partnership - Climate Leaders is a voluntary industry- government partnership that encourages companies to develop long-term comprehensive climate change strategies and set greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions reduction goals.
Combined Heat and Power - also known as cogeneration, is an efficient and reliable approach to generating power and thermal energy from a single fuel source. CHP is more efficient, cleaner, and reliable than conventional central power plants. The EPA Combined Heat and Power Partnership is a voluntary program that seeks to reduce the environmental impact of power generation by fostering the use of cost-effective CHP.
Design for the Environment (DfE) - helps businesses incorporate environmental considerations into the design redesign of products, processes, and technical and management systems.
Energy Star Programs - works with the private sector developing cutting-edge, voluntary partnerships for the production and use of energy-efficient equipment.
Environmentally Preferable Purchasing Program - a federal-wide program that encourages and assists Executive agencies to purchase environmentally preferable products and services.
Enviro$en$e - this site provides a single repository for pollution prevention, compliance assurance, and enforcement information and data bases.
Green Power Partnership - The Green Power Partnership is a voluntary Partnership between the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and organizations that are interested in buying green power. Through this program, the EPA supports organizations that are buying or planning to buy green power. As a Green Power Partner, an organization pledges to replace a portion of its electricity consumption with green power within a year of joining the Partnership. The EPA offers credible benchmarks for green power purchases, market information, and opportunities for recognition and promotion of leading purchasers.
Lead Programs - information on all aspects of the federal lead poisoning prevention program.
Oil Spill Program - information about the U.S. EPA's program for preventing, preparing for, and responding to oil spills that occur in and around inland waters of the United States.
Ozone Layer Protection Program - contains information about ozone depletion, regulations in the US designed to protect the ozone layer, and more.
Pay-As-You-Throw Programs - provides information about paying for solid waste disposal directly based on the amount of waste generated.
Pesticide Environmental Stewardship Program - a voluntary program that forms partnerships with pesticide users to reduce health and environmental risk and implement pollution prevention strategies.
Pollution Prevention - works for "source reduction," and other practices that reduce or eliminate the creation of pollutants.
Presidential Green Chemistry Challenge - this program seeks to promote pollution prevention and industrial ecology through a partnership with the chemical industry.
Sunwise Schools Program - This program provides materials to help teachers educate students in K-6 about protecting themselves from overexposure to the sun's ultraviolet radiation.
Toxic Release Inventory - the source of information about toxic chemicals that are being used, manufactured, transported, or released into the environment.
Waste Minimization - focuses on reducing the generation and subsequent release to the environment of the most persistent, bioaccumulative, and toxic chemicals in hazardous wastes.
Waste Prevention - offers information about efforts to reduce municipal solid waste and examples of how source reduction efforts benefit business and industry, governments, and consumers.
WasteWi$e Program - a voluntary program that targets the reduction of municipal solid waste; waste that would otherwise end up in a trash dumpster.
Water Efficiency - EPA's water efficiency program,
publications and related water conservation information.
