E3 and Sustainable Manufacturing Training
On June 3, GEMI held a webinar discussion with Tom Murray and Pam Swingle of the US EPA to learn more about the Federal’s government’s E3 initiative, and tools/resources available through the program.
E3 is a technical assistance framework helping communities, manufacturers, and manufacturing supply chains adapt and thrive in today’s green economy. E3 supports the Investing in Manufacturing Communities Partnership (IMCP), a new Administration-wide initiative designed to accelerate the resurgence of manufacturing and help communities cultivate an environment for businesses to create well-paying manufacturing jobs in cities across the country.
Through its E3 work, EPA’s Region 4 has developed the ‘Sustainable Manufacturing Curriculum: Greening the Future by Educating Tomorrow’s Workforce’ to help address the growing demand for employees who are trained to identify opportunities for improving process efficiencies and preventing environmental wastes.
