Pollution prevention federal action strategy: chapter 7

Being Part of the Solution

The federal government's pollution prevention strategy grew out of a commitment to sustainable development and out of deep concern for the quality of life on our planet. It responds to a growing body of evidence that suggests that pollution is not only harmful, it's inefficient. Reliance on management and control of pollution allows us to waste our resources and inhibits our ability to adopt new, more efficient, less costly and less polluting means of environmental protection.

The government's pollution prevention strategy asks all Canadians to recognize pollution as a burden, one that is affecting our quality of life and preventing us from competing effectively in the global marketplace. This strategy is an invitation to change our behaviour, to find new and better ways of going about our business. It's a call to action.
