The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency invites you to learn about its new Sector Strategies Program through this first Sector Strategies Performance Report. Launched in 2003, the Sector Strategies Program promotes industry-wide environmental gains through innovative partnerships with 12 manufacturing and service sectors. Through this collaborative, voluntary partnership, we are working with sector trade groups and other stakeholders to reduce pollution and conserve resources, and to measure corresponding performance results through quantitative metrics. During the first year of the Sector Strategies Program, we looked back on each sector's environmental progress to date in order to set the stage for further performance enhancements. We also discussed with our sector partners where additional opportunities for environmental performance improvements lie. Key environmental opportunities identified through our research and discussions form the basis for this report.
