This report focuses primarily on EPA's environmental stewardship activities and opportunities. We begin this report by offering a summary of our key recommendations, findings, and immediate action steps. We then describe NACEPT's work to date in the area of environmental stewardship and the opportunity and challenge before us. We define environmental stewardship as taking responsibility for our choices and explore what taking responsibility means. With this introduction, we present our recommendations, as well as the reasoning behind them, in greater depth. We conclude with seven appendices. Appendix 1 provides a list of the Workgroup members and our acknowledgments. Appendix 2 is a copy of the charge to our Workgroup. Appendix 3 is our interim advice letter to EPA Administrator Stephen Johnson. Appendix 4 contains three examples that illustrate opportunities for environmental stewardship and the array of approaches needed to convey the stewardship message. Appendix 5 is a discussion of the traditional roots of environmental stewardship. Appendix 6 is a table that shows areas of overlap between our recommendations and those contained in EPA's Everyday Choices report. Finally, Appendix 7 defines the acronyms used in this report.
