EPA Aims to Promote Environmental Stewardship Through Agency-Industry Partnership

The Environmental Protection Agency has launched a program meant to help regulated industries manage environmental outcomes through a sector-based collaborative approach.

EPA said Oct. 3 its Smart Sectors initiative offers the agency an opportunity to explore environmental protection methods and policies.

Participating sectors include the aerospace, construction, electronics and technology, power generation and energy industries.

“The Smart Sectors program is designed to effectively engage business partners throughout the regulatory process,”  said EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt.

Pruitt added the agency seeks to encourage collaboration between regulators and businesses to protect the environment.

The EPA Office of Policy’s Immediate Office will oversee the program and each partner sector will appoint a leader to serve as the ombudsman within agency cross program and regional offices.
