Abstract : Despite increased emphasis on pollution prevention, Army installations are not finding their pollution prevention programs at effective levels. This situation has resulted in part from the current Army environmental 'must fund' policy and its associated reporting system. By the time all must fund projects and other mission-essential requirements have been funded, the typical installation has few resources left to apply toward the heretofore lower priority prevention projects that 'go beyond compliance.' This research document outlines a proposal for establishing and operating a pollution prevention investment fund, which would provide an alternative source of funding for prevention projects (to be administered separately from existing environmental compliance accounts). Specific areas addressed by the proposal include project prioritization and funding criteria, procedures for identification and disposition of savings, alternative fund start-up and sustainment sources, as well as a suggested approach for pollution prevention cost accounting.
