ETC member companies are committed to minimizing the environmental impacts of their services, operations and products through application of sustainability principles such as recycling, reuse, pollution prevention, and conservation of materials and natural resources.  Their sustainability programs comply with federal, state and local requirements. 

Environmental sustainability requires responsible interactions to avoid depletion or degradation of natural resources, as well as proactive protection of our environment over the long term. Improper waste management and chemical releases can expose communities to unacceptable risks and harm natural ecosystems. ETC member companies contribute to a sustainable environment by providing secure, environmentally protective solutions for the treatment, disposal, and recycling of waste generated by industrial processes, households or the cleanup of contaminated sites. 

ETC members realize that sustainability stewardship must be a core aspect of their brands and is a key component of long-term business success.  Sustainability is their responsibility to the environment, society and the economy.  Our member companies are committed to working with stakeholders to enhance business value while minimizing negative impacts to human health and the environment.
