Across the country, businesses are
discovering that responsible environmental
management goes hand in hand with
financial growth. Pollution from industrial
facilities is a problem, but it can
also signal opportunities for profitable
investments in pollution prevention.
Pollution prevention reduces unwanted
hazardous substances at their source.
Several studies have been done of
businesses that are experimenting
with pollution prevention. They indicate
that a pollution prevention program
offers nearly every industrial facility
the opportunity to reduce its environmental
impact while bolstering its competitiveness
and growth. In New Jersey, facilities
that have implemented pollution prevention
have already realized positive returns
on their investment.
