North American Pollutant Release and Transfer Register

#DidYouKnow that every year, industrial facilities in North America must report the quantity of pollutants they release to the air?

This map shows that reported pollutants decreased from 456M kg to 386M kg (2014-2018). The @Commission North American Pollutant Release and Transfer Register #PRTR Initiative promotes public access to data and information reported by industrial facilities in Canada, Mexico, and the United States.

This is to improve the understanding of the sources and management of pollutants of common concern across the region and support decision-making relative to pollution prevention and reduction.
