Sector Strategies Program Performance Report

New Report Profiles Environmental Performance in 12 Major Sectors. A new EPA report establishes a performance baseline for tracking future environmental progress in a number of key industrial and service sectors. The 2004 Sector Strategies Performance Report provides a snapshot of environmental trend data for each of 12 sectors, including construction, forest products, and iron and steel manufacturing, that participate in the Agency's multi-media Sector Strategies Program. Drawing from publicly available data sources, the report presents a demographic profile of each sector, plus performance information in such areas as energy conservation, water and air quality, and waste management. This report marks the first time that the Agency has assembled available data in this format, as a way to help the public better understand the environmental progress that is being made in a given sector. It will serve as a starting point for identifying the knowledge gaps that need to be filled in order to improve performance measurement in the future. Measuring performance is a critical part of EPA's Sector Strategies Program, which also seeks collaborative ways to promote the use of environmental management systems and address regulatory barriers that can hinder performance improvements.
