Anheuser-Busch Companies

Letter from Bill Sugar to David Doniger


November 10, 1994

Mr. David Doniger
Washington, D.C.


Dear Dave:

As part of our Corporate Commitment to Environmental Excellence program, Anheuser-Busch Companies, Inc. strives for innovative, environmentally beneficial projects that promote pollution prevention and resource conservation. We often find these efforts stifled by inflexible regulatory policy and/or guidelines.

Companies like Anheuser-Busch, make capital investments that ensure compliance with known regulatory requirements, and that preinvest for future compliance assurance. However, the current regulatory structure offers no credit for early or over compliance. The lack of timely regulatory promulgation and the uncertainty of policy changes put such companies that wish to be proactive environmental leaders at a competitive disadvantage.

Innovative technology programs, whether end-of-pipe or pollution prevention/resource conservation, must be encouraged through programs that can offer credits and an expedited means of gaining approval in a currently unworkable state implementation program. Revisions to SIP's must be made less complex and less time consuming in order to provide incentives for technological innovation.

I look forward to discussing these ideas as well as those from other subcommittee members at our January 25 meeting.

Best wishes,

J. William Sugar
Sr. Director, Environmental Affairs
