The National Research Council's Committee on Industrial Competitiveness and Environmental Protection was formed to look at efforts undertaken in recent years to foster environmental initiatives within various industry sectors. Specifically, the charge to the committee was to: Assess (1) ways to enhance and sustain recent 'voluntary' efforts by industry and government facility managers in pollution prevention and energy efficiency, and (2) recent efforts by EPA, DOE, and other agencies to stimulate, facilitate, and reward such efforts. The committee gathered information on a variety of programs to elucidate their common elements and some of the factors apparently influencing industry involvement in them.
