About the Indiana Partners for Pollution Prevention

In 1996, the Indiana Department of Environmental Management facilitated the development of the Indiana Partners for Pollution Prevention (Partners). Since then, the membership has grown to approximately 100 organizations. The Indiana Partners for Pollution Prevention is comprised of Indiana industries, businesses, nonprofit organizations and governmental entities that are interested in pollution prevention (P2), as well as the financial and environmental benefits P2 projects can bring. The Partners realize that pollution prevention is the arena where the environment and economics can meet on common ground, and successful practices and approaches can be promoted to achieve measurable reduction of pollution in Indiana. The Partners also provide a forum where Indiana businesses can network, exchange ideas about P2 experiences, and discuss how P2 fits into current and future IDEM programs.
