In 2002, EPA released a comprehensive strategy to drive innovation in environmental programs. Innovating for Better Environmental Results: A Strategy to Guide the Next Generation of Innovation at EPA builds upon past successes with innovative approaches to environmental protection and lays out how EPA will continue to advance new ideas to improve the quality of our work. This report describes the progress made to date and reaffirms our commitment to advancing innovative approaches in the future. Indeed, sustaining a focus on innovative approaches is as important as ever. Today we are challenged by increasingly complex environmental problems that defy conventional regulatory solutions, budget constraints that require doing more with less, and the expectations of an American public that looks to EPA for leadership in ensuring environmental progress. Innovation is key to meeting these and other challenges. Indeed, asking the question 'Is there a better way', is one of the hallmarks of EPA Administrator Mike Leavitts leadership. Today we are asking that question much more routinely. And by searching for the answer, in partnership with other organizations that share our interests, we are moving toward a stronger, more cost-effective environmental protection system for the country.
