EPA to Launch Retailers Web Portal

The EPA in the US is to launch a web portal to provide information on sustainability and compliance for the retail sector. The US Retail Industry Leaders Association (RILA) is working with the IPA on the portal, which will provide access to all retail-related environment compliance, sustainability and pollution prevention information within the EPA's web site.

Expect to see more of this. Government web sites in the US, UK and Europe have extensive information on environmental legislation, etc, but there will be an increasing need to pull this information together and direct it at particular sections of the business community. Particularly as climate change legislation kicks in, with emissions reductions targets, the information will need to expand beyond compliance to advice, contact information, etc. Information portals are a vital part of the public sector armoury.
