"An Ounce of Prevention" P2 Video
Abstract: American industry operated for nearly 200 years with no regard to environmental impact. It became clear by the late 1960s that the accepted lack of waste management had to change. In an effort to reverse the trend of pollution, the government formed the U.S. EPA to administer new pollution control laws. The high cost of "end of pipe" solutions has prompted industry to find better, more efficient ways of producing their products to lower the amount of waste generated. Pollution Prevention can be achieved in a variety of ways. Video produced by Ohio EPA, made available online in clips by the Pollution Prevention Regional Information Center (P2RIC)

Michigan Clean Corporate Citizen (C3) Program
Abstract: This portion of the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality web site describes the Clean Corporate Citizen (C3) Program and provides links to all related annual reports, application forms, and other documentation. The C3 program allows regulated establishments that have demonstrated environmental stewardship and a strong environmental ethic through their operations in Michigan to be recognized as Clean Corporate Citizens. The C3 program is built on the concept that these Michigan facilities can be relied upon to carry out their environmental protection responsibilities without rigorous oversight, and should enjoy greater permitting flexibility than those that have not demonstrated that level of environmental awareness. Clean Corporate Citizens who voluntarily participate in this program will receive public recognition and are entitled to certain regulatory benefits, including expedited permits.
