Tracking and reporting to ChemTRAC helps businesses identify the major sources of toxic chemicals or priority substances in their facility. With the major sources identified, businesses can develop plans to reduce their use and release of priority substances.

For many businesses, this is the first time they will be sharing information about the use and release of chemicals in their facility. This is also an opportunity for businesses to share the pollution prevention efforts that they are making and to explain how their business works through the voluntary Environmental Statement in the ChemTRAC Data Disclosure System.
