Excerpt
Foreword: The ability of the United States to achieve sustained and sustainable economic growth is directly linked to the opportunity for its businesses to integrate environmental and productivity decisions. Since 1970, successive Congresses and Presidents, in a bipartisan response, have introduced a wide range of policies and programs directed toward improving U.S. environmental performance. These policies and programs have led to substantial environmental improvements across the United States. More recently, market-based, information-based, and performance-based policy instruments have begun to be introduced; these new policy instruments encourage the marketplace to seek and apply environmental solutions both to enhance economic competitiveness and to improve environmental parameters.
