(10/31/03) The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency is co-sponsoring with the National Pollution Prevention Roundtable a spring conference entitled “National Environmental Assistance Summit” to be held April 19- 22, 2004, in Baltimore, Md. The Summit will convene individuals who work in the environmental assistance arena. Industry, small business and trade association representatives are encouraged to attend and provide their perspectives on environmental assistance. Sessions will focus on pollution prevention, compliance assistance, environmental policy innovations, environmental management systems, sustainability and best practices. Three EPA Offices, (Compliance, Pollution Prevention and Toxics and the National Center for Environmental Innovation) have worked with the National Pollution Prevention Roundtable. The goal of the Summit is for members of the environmental assistance community -- those who create, fund, deliver and receive it – to learn from each other how best to improve environmental performance.
