A Partners membership provides each company with opportunities to network with other industries, businesses, nonprofit organizations, and governmental entities which share an interest in pollution prevention. They also will benefit from learning about the financial and environmental benefits of pollution prevention projects from the Partners organization. Each year, Partners hold quarterly meetings and an annual conference and trade show, enabling members to exchange ideas, receive updates on regulations, and hear pollution prevention success stories.
