EPA Launches Retail Sustainability Portal

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has launched a Web portal that will provide retailers with a central clearinghouse for information regarding environmental sustainability and compliance, according to the Retail Industry Leaders Association. The retail-specific tool is the product of an ongoing dialogue between EPA and its retail partners.

The portal includes all EPA content related to retail environmental compliance as well as links to many of the leading non-EPA resources for environmentally responsible retailers.

"Compliance assistance is an important tool to help achieve compliance with environmental regulations. This collaboration with the retail industry provides a cost-effective way to provide educational and technical materials to help the retail sector maintain and go beyond compliance. We appreciate the support of the retail leaders that helped EPA develop the Retail Industry Web Portal," said Lisa Lund, director, EPA Office of Compliance.
