Status of Pollution Prevention in North America

Description

As environmental protection becomes increasingly more sophisticated, companies and governments in North America are moving away from traditional “end-of-pipe” pollution control methods in favor of changes to production that eliminate or reduce waste and pollution from the outset.

In this report, three experts discuss current strategies and incentives for pollution prevention in Mexico, Canada and the United States. The report is part of CEC efforts to develop specific recommendations on pollution prevention techniques and strategies in North America.
