PRTRs provide facility-reported data and information on the management of substances that can have detrimental impacts on our health and shared environment
Along with the energy, materials and items they produce, North American industries generate pollutants that must be managed to protect human health and the environment. Each year, facilities report the amounts of substances they release to air, water, or land, send to disposal, or transfer for recycling or other management. We integrate and analyze data reported to the Canadian, Mexican and US PRTRs and make them available to the public through Taking Stock Online and the Taking Stock report series.
North American industry sectors produce the energy, materials and items that we use every day. They also generate pollutants that must be managed.
The North American Environmental Atlas seamlessly assembles accurate cartographic data including maps, documentation, and interactive map layers at a scale of 1:10,000,000.
Taking Stock Online allows users to explore North American Pollutant Release and Transfer Register (PRTR) data through interactive tools and comprehensive reports.
