The Michigan Business Pollution Prevention Partnership (MBP3) is a voluntary program open to all Michigan businesses, regardless of size, who are interested in initiating or expanding pollution prevention (P2) practices and receiving recognition for these efforts. Involvement in MBP3 gives businesses direct access to relevant case studies, individual advice, P2 updates and news, helpful resources, and access to the extensive P2 partnership contact list.
MBP3 is the goal-setting level of the Environmental Stewards Partnership - Encouraging businesses to initiate and expand their current Pollution Prevention (P2) practices. MBP3 aims to provide support to P2 efforts through personal assistance and resources, as well as recognize their individual efforts through public recognition.
To enroll, a brief online registration form must be completed that requires the business to set the framework of their environmental goals. Once accepted, participants are asked to provide an annual performance report of their progress and share success stories on their pollution prevention activities. The MBP3 program is managed by the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality's Office of Environmental Assistance Pollution Prevention and Stewardship Unit, who will be responsible for providing pollution prevention assistance, participant recognition, and reporting on the program's progress.
