New EPA Web site provides assistance with environmental compliance

Arlington, Va. The Environmental Protection Agency has launched a Web portal that will provide retailers with a central clearinghouse for information regarding environmental sustainability and compliance.

The retail-specific tool is the product of an ongoing dialogue between the EPA and its retail partners. RILA has been a primary resource and sounding board for the EPA during the design and development of the Web portal.

The Web portal creates a central location for environmental compliance, sustainability and pollution-prevention resources applicable to the retail sector, a one-stop shop for retailers looking for sustainability information from the EPA.

“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.
