Public Meeting of the North American PRTR Project

The Commission for Environmental Cooperation (CEC) invites you to attend the annual meeting of the North American Pollutant Release and Transfer (PRTR) Project in Washington, DC, United States, on 18 October 2016.

The meeting brings together individuals from industry, government, nongovernmental organizations, academia, and the public-at-large who are interested in industrial pollution and environmental sustainability. Participants will explore the latest trilateral pollution data and tools available through the CEC’s Taking Stock Online website, including the new watersheds query tool.

Officials from the region’s three PRTR programs, Canada’s National Pollutant Release Inventory (NPRI), Mexico’s Registro de Emisiones y Transferencia de Contaminantes (RETC), and the United States’ Toxics Release Inventory (TRI), will present updates on their respective programs and invite questions from the audience. Participants will also have the opportunity to learn more about the next edition of the CEC’s Taking Stock report and share ideas about suitable topics for special analyses in future reports.

This year’s event is being held one day before the Toxics Release Inventory (TRI) National Training Conference, which will take place at the same venue on 19–20 October.

Participation in the CEC’s meeting is free of charge. Limited financial assistance is available to eligible participants for travel and lodging, and may be requested no later than 22 August.
