The Environmental Technology Task Force
The Environmental Technology Task Force was established in September
1996 by the White House Council on Environmental Quality. The Task Force
is involved in the following activities:
- Providing outreach and information on the National Environmental
Technology Strategy (released in April, 1995) and the Education for
Sustainability Strategy (released in December, 1996).
- Serving as a "one-stop-shop" to inform businesses, communities, universities
and NGO's about federal environmental technology programs and opportunities
for public-private partnerships to advance the development and deployment
of environmentally-sound technologies in our businesses and communities.
- Supporting specific projects undertaken by the Administration to
advance the National Environmental Technology Strategy, including work
on education, industrial ecology, and the development of a better understanding
of the use of energy and materials in our society.
The Task Force is comprised of three different groups which share an
office, and work closely with the President's Council on Sustainable Development.
