Partnerships

  

The Partnerships page contains information on various Federal, State, public and private partnership programs. The list is arranged by media type.
Please select a category from the list above or scroll down through the lists of partnering programs below.

General
A collection of partnership experiences that states, regions, and cities have had with foreign counterparts on sharing best practices and innovations in environmental policies and methods. The links on this site provide information on the partnership background, resultant initiatives where applicable, and contacts or links to the partnership Web site. Many regions have also led exchanges with other countries that did not result in permanent partnerships; a selection of these experiences can also be found on the site.
Air Emissions
A voluntary effort jointly sponsored by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the U.S. Department of Agriculture, and the U.S. Department of Energy. The program encourages the use of methane recovery (biogas) technologies at the confined animal feeding operations that manage manure as liquids or slurries.
A partnership established by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT), this program publicly recognizes employers whose commuter benefits reach the National Standard of Excellence.
These programs were launched as a joint effort by EPA and industry groups to reduce the amount of fluorinated gases (F-Gas) emitted from a variety of industrial processes. The programs promote the development and adoption of cost-effective F-Gas emission reduction opportunities.
This is an EPA cooperative alliance with the supermarket industry and other stakeholders to promote the adoption of technologies, strategies, and practices that reduce emissions of ozone-depleting substances (ODS) and greenhouse gases (GHGs) and increase refrigeration system energy efficiency.
The mission of the Environment Program is to reduce the generation of greenhouse gases that contribute to global warming, conserve living marine resources with a particular emphasis on fisheries, and protect critical forest habitat and wilderness on public lands in North America. The Trusts make grants only to organizations classified as tax-exempt under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.
This is a collaborative voluntary program between EPA and the freight industry that will increase the energy efficiency and energy security of our country while significantly reducing air pollution and greenhouse gases. The Partnership creates strong market-based incentives that challenge companies shipping products and the truck and rail companies delivering these products, to improve the environmental performance of their freight operations. SmartWay Transport partners improve their energy efficiency, save money, reduce greenhouse gas emissions and improve air quality.
A partnership between leaders from federal, state, and local government, the private sector, and environmental groups in California, Oregon, Idaho and Washington, Alaska, British Columbia and Mexico. The Collaborative is part of an overall national campaign to reduce diesel emissions. The goal of the West Coast Collaborative is to leverage significant federal funds to reduce emissions from the most polluting diesel sources in the most affected communities and to significantly improve air quality and public health.
Energy
The CHP Partnership is a voluntary program that seeks to reduce the environmental impact of power generation by promoting the use of CHP.The Partnership works closely with energy users, the CHP industry, state and local governments, and other stakeholders to support the development of new projects and promote their energy, environmental, and economic benefits.
Investing in energy efficiency, renewable energy, and climate change policies and programs is an important way for state and local governments to achieve multiple goals: reducing greenhouse gas emissions, improving air quality and people's health, and saving money. EPA's State and Local Climate and Energy Program offers expertise about energy efficiency, renewable energy, and climate change policies and programs to interested state, local, and tribal governments.
This group partners and facilitates communications with Federal agencies, utilities and energy service companies to implement cost-effective energy efficiency and water conservation projects. The Working Group meets three times a year to exchange information on recent utility incentive program success stories, current FEMP programs and products, individual agency energy management programs, and reports from the various Working Group subcommittees.
This is a voluntary EPA program that supports the organizational procurement of green power by offering expert advice, technical support, tools and resources.
The U.S. EPA's Landfill Methane Outreach Program (LMOP) is a voluntary assistance and partnership program that promotes the use of landfill gas as a renewable, green energy source.
The program partners will transparently report systematic and comprehensive actions to reduce methane emissions and be publicly recognized as leaders in reducing methane emissions in the U.S. Doing so reduces operational risk, increases efficiency, and demonstrates company concern for the environment, with benefits spanning from climate change to air quality improvements to conservation of a non-renewable energy resource.
This is a flexible, voluntary partnership between EPA and the oil and natural gas industry. Through the Program, EPA works with companies that produce, process, and transmit and distribute natural gas to identify and promote the implementation of cost-effective technologies and practices to reduce emissions of methane, a potent greenhouse gas.
This is a collaborative voluntary program between EPA and the freight industry that will increase the energy efficiency and energy security of our country while significantly reducing air pollution and greenhouse gases. The Partnership creates strong market-based incentives that challenge companies shipping products and the truck and rail companies delivering these products, to improve the environmental performance of their freight operations. SmartWay Transport partners improve their energy efficiency, save money, reduce greenhouse gas emissions and improve air quality.
Hazardous Materials/Chemistry
To promote innovative chemical technologies that reduce or eliminate the use or generation of hazardous substances in the design, manufacture, and use of chemical products.
Hazardous Waste
WasteWise is a free, voluntary, EPA program helping U.S. organizations eliminate costly municipal solid waste, benefitting the bottom line and the environment.
Solid Waste
The U.S. EPA's Landfill Methane Outreach Program (LMOP) is a voluntary assistance and partnership program that promotes the use of landfill gas as a renewable, green energy source.
WasteWise is a free, voluntary, EPA program helping U.S. organizations eliminate costly municipal solid waste, benefitting the bottom line and the environment.
Transportation
A voluntary, public/private initiative which seeks to incorporate environmental streamlining and stewardship into all aspects of the highway lifecycle.
This is a collaborative voluntary program between EPA and the freight industry that will increase the energy efficiency and energy security of our country while significantly reducing air pollution and greenhouse gases. The Partnership creates strong market-based incentives that challenge companies shipping products and the truck and rail companies delivering these products, to improve the environmental performance of their freight operations. SmartWay Transport partners improve their energy efficiency, save money, reduce greenhouse gas emissions and improve air quality.
Water
A voluntary public-private partnership that identifies and promotes high performance products and programs that help preserve the nation’s water supply (EO 13423, Section 2(c)).
