This web site was designed to collect readily available data on waste reduction and
resource efficiency efforts ("pollution prevention," or P2) from public agencies in
Kansas, Iowa, Nebraska, and Missouri.
The data will help demonstrate the activities of agencies, as well as the positive
changes of their clients as a result of their activities.
In addition, the data will help quantify P2 progress related to air, water, waste, and energy resources.
This model is also designed to translate P2 progress into the context of bigger-picture
issues such as climate change, habitat, and sustainability.
An aggregated report for the entire region that includes all data submitted from all agencies
is available to all viewers. It includes measures such as the following:
This information can give managers, funders, and the public
a better sense of the benefits of pollution prevention.
Registered users have a user name and password that allows them to input data, and
view a report that summarizes all the data from their agency.
Who Is Behind This Effort
This web site was created by P2Rx - the Pollution Prevention Resource Exchange.
The work was funded by P2Rx, NPPR, and US EPA. The
National P2 Measurement Results Task Force,
comprised of representatives from State P2 programs, EPA Headquarters and Regions,
P2 Resource Exchange Centers (P2Rx), and the National Pollution Prevention Roundtable (NPPR),
contributed greatly to the process by developing a core set of P2 measures -
the Data Dictionary - which is the foundation for this project. The Task force also identified
and addressed barriers and opportunities for P2 results measurement.

History of the P2 Results Measurement Tool
This P2 Results Measurement Tool was originally created through funding from U.S. EPA Region 10 and Oregon's Dept.
of Environmental Quality, as part of a project undertaken between August 2001 and June 2002. Development of the
tool was facilitated by the Pacific Northwest Pollution Prevention Resource
Center (PPRC) with contributions for local and state P2 program managers in the Northwest.
The model was developed with a few main goals in mind:
