This is an announcement of the extension of the deadline for submitting P2 results data for calendar years 2007, 2008, and 2009. The National Pollution Prevention Roundtable (NPPR) / Pollution Prevention Resource Exchange (P2Rx) P2 Results Task Force requests that your program submits P2 results data to your regional P2Rx Center for input into the P2 Results Data System. If your program has already submitted 2007 through 2009 data, then we thank you and ignore this request.
For 2007 and 2008 data, the deadline has been extended to November 12, 2010. For 2009 data, the deadline has been extended to December 31, 2010.
The P2 Results Task Force has recently worked on upgrading and improving the P2 Results Data System in response to comments and requests from users. In particular, the System now includes greenhouse gas metrics, updated and improved cost calculators, and the capability to identify results associated with EPA grant funding. A webinar was conducted in October to explain these upgrades. A copy of the presentation can be found on the P2Rx website at http://www.p2rx.org/services/measurement.cfm.
In addition to each P2Rx Center using the results data to generate regional reports, NPPR will help prepare a three-year national report on P2 results that covers data for 2007 – 2009. NPPR will begin drafting the report in the near future and will utilize the 2007 and 2008 data to begin the analysis portion of the report. 2009 data that is submitted by the deadline will be included in this report. Data submitted after the December 31, 2010 deadline will be included in the System but may not be utilized in the NPPR national report. Since 1990, NPPR has documented over 200 billion pounds of waste reduced, 145 billion gallons of water conserved, and 125 billion dollars saved. These results demonstrate the value of P2 in not only environmental terms and natural resource conservation, but also in economic benefits such as job creation and retention.
There is a fact sheet available on the P2Rx web site that describes the P2 Results Task Force and the benefits of joining. The Task Force is interested in involving new members. Please contact the co-chairs, Terri Goldberg (NEWMOA) or Ken Grimm (PPRC) if you have any questions or are interested in joining the group.
Data should be submitted to one of the following regional P2Rx Centers; contact your Center if you have any questions about how to participate in the System:
