EPA Partnership

A truly unique aspect of SP is its partnership with the EPA, which helps provide SP with topics for special projects and approaches.

More importantly, SP provides a forum for member companies and the EPA to work in collaboration to achieve common environmental goals.

Tom Murray, a co-founder of SP who has now retired from EPA after 44+ years, discusses the value of working together through groups like SP.
