  1. EPA’s Performance Track:An Opportunity for Leadership Daniel J. Fiorino U.S. Environmental Protection Agency

  2. The Idea of Performance Track • use carrots as well as sticks • address problems not covered by regulations • promote continuous improvement • align environmental & economic success • recognize & drive environmental excellence FOOTER

  3. Performance Track Basics • launched in 2000 by Carol Browner • 450 facility members in 46 states • four Corporate Leaders • open to private and public facilities • close collaboration with state programs • high level of satisfaction from members • “top 50” innovation in government in 2006 FOOTER

  4. Performance Track Criteria • commitment to measurable improvement • environmental management system (EMS) • record of sustained compliance • community outreach FOOTER

  5. Johnson & Johnson Baxter Healthcare Rockwell Collins Coca Cola 3M Toyota Xerox Intel United Technologies Xanterra Resorts Dallas/Ft. Worth Int. Airport Swiss Re Insurance Ft. Benning, GA Kent Co. DE Wastewater NASA Hewlett Packard Michelin NA Some Performance Track Members FOOTER

  6. Performance Track has 453 members across the country. Note: Where there are multiple facilities in the same zip code, they are represented by a single dot. Updated June 2007 FOOTER

  7. Members represent diverse sectors and industries. Manufacturing 58 Electrical Equipment Chemical Products 57 40 Wood, Paper, and Printing Products 35 Pharmaceutical Products 35 Rubber & Plastics Products 34 Transportation Equipment 31 Metal Products 27 Medical Equipment 14 Miscellaneous Manufacturing Members’ Relationship to Sector: 12 Machinery Equipment Primary Secondary 11 Textile Products Tertiary Quaternary 9 Mining & Construction Updated June 2007 FOOTER

  8. Member Obligations • manage EMS and compliance effectively • make progress toward meeting goals • Inform the local community • meet member obligations for: • Annual Performance Reports • site visits • annual recertification of compliance and EMS • apply for renewal after three years FOOTER

  9. Member Benefits • improved environmental performance • better relationships with government • recognition and enhanced reputation • streamlined transactions • flexibility (permits, storage time) • part of a network of environmental leaders FOOTER

  10. Members commit to reducing waste, conserving energy and water, and cutting emissions. Commitment Category Number of Members 353 Reduce Waste 272 Reduce Energy Use 228 Reduce Water Use 183 Reduce Material Use 174 Reduce Air Emissions 73 Modify Material Procurement 60 Increase Land and Habitat 48 Reduce Discharges to Water 18 Reduce Noise 9 Green Products 7 Other 4 Work with Supplier Updated June 2007 FOOTER

  11. Environmental Results (air) • Members have reduced (2001-2005) • SOx by 42,700 tons • NOx by 13,400 tons • VOCs by 3,100 tons • GHGs by 69,300 tons of CO2 equivalent FOOTER

  12. Environmental Results (water & waste) • Members have reduced (2001-2005): • water use by 4.7 billion gallons • conventional water discharges by 10,000 tons • water toxics by 5,600 tons • hazardous waste by 133,000 tons • non-hazardous waste by 1.5 million tons, and • conserved or restored 14,000 acres of habitat FOOTER

  13. Benefits of Air Reductions(cumulative, 2001-2005) • NOx $ 6-59 million • SOx $ 84-891 million • PM 10 $ 3-28 million • VOCs $ 2-10 million FOOTER

  14. Avoided Cost of Waste Reductions(cumulative, 2001-2005) • Hazardous waste $42 million • Non-hazardous waste $24-173 million FOOTER

  15. Examples of Cost Savings (individual members) • $200,000 by reducing hazardous waste generation • $1.5 million in avoided costs for energy reductions • $320,000 from reducing solid waste generation • $120,000 annual saving from reduction in BOD demand FOOTER

  16. Effectson Member Behavior • 54% led to innovative environmental solutions • 56% resulted in cost savings at their sites • 40% led to reduced environmental impacts • 30% improved EMS to qualify, of which: • 55% set more aggressive targets • 47% expanded community outreach • 62% re-evaluated existing list of environmental impacts FOOTER

  17. Aligned State Programs Include: • Virginia Environmental Excellence • Georgia P2 Partnership • Indiana Environmental Stewardship • Arizona Performance Track • Colorado Environmental Leadership • New York Environmental Leaders (in progress) FOOTER

  18. States With Environmental Performance Programs • Active State Program • Developing State Program • No State Program • Updated 7/26/2007 FOOTER

  19. Performance Track-State Memorandum of Agreement • State with MOA • State without MOA • Updated 7/26/2007 FOOTER

  20. Corporate Leaders • encourage corporate commitment • enlist visible and recognized firms • create a forum for EPA and leaders • provide a benchmark for others • current Corporate Leaders Include: • Johnson & Johnson • Baxter • Rockwell Collins • Xanterra Parks and Resorts FOOTER

  21. Goals for the Next 5 Years • expand membership & ownership • increase the environmental value • increase the business value • integrate into agency programs • demonstrate value of effective partnerships FOOTER
