Short description: Greener cleanup metrics quantify contributions to the environmental footprint of activities directly involved in cleaning up a contaminated site. EPA developed a set of 14 universal metrics to help stakeholders understand the total amounts of materials, waste, water or energy that are used or generated during the life or particular portion of a cleanup project 
Long description: EPA developed a companion Excel-based Greener Cleanup Metrics Workbook that may be used to document and report each of the 14 metrics for a cleanup project. The needed input typically exists in project planning and implementation documents or supporting records. The output depends on predetermined delineation of the timeframe in which selected activities occur, such as one or more cleanup phases or calendar years. To learn more about the metrics, view the Greener Cleanup Metrics Q&As.
