NACEPT Subcommittee on Promoting Environmental Stewardship

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION: Notice of meeting.


SUMMARY: Under the Federal Advisory Committee Act, Public Law 92-463, 
EPA gives notice of a meeting of the NACEPT Subcommittee on Promoting 
Environmental Stewardship.
    The purpose of the Subcommittee on Promoting Environmental 
Stewardship (SPES) of the National Advisory Council for Environmental 
Policy and Technology (NACEPT) is to advise the U.S. Environmental 
Protection Agency on how to promote environmental stewardship practices 
that encompass all environmental aspects of an organization in the 
regulated community and other sectors, as appropriate, in order to 
enhance human health and environmental protection. A copy of the 
meeting agenda will be posted at http://epa.gov/ncei/dialogue.htm. This 
Web site also includes the charge of the SPES, which provides further 
information about the purpose of the Subcommittee.
    The agenda for the subject meeting will focus on discussions among 
the three current Subcommittee workgroups: (1) Gap Analysis Workgroup, 
which is exploring how stewardship activities may accomplish Agency 
goals that are not covered by statute or regulation; (2) Short-term 
Recommendations Workgroup, which is looking at relatively simple and 
quick actions for EPA to implement in the short term to promote 
stewardship; and (3) Long-term Recommendations Workgroup, which is 
exploring EPA's role in addressing issues that invite and require a 
cross-sector, cross-media, and long-term perspective (e.g., climate 
change and energy use).

DATES: The NACEPT Subcommittee on Promoting Environmental Stewardship 
will hold an open meeting on October 6 (8:30 a.m.-5 p.m.) and October 
7, 2009 (8:30 a.m.-5 p.m.) Eastern standard time.

ADDRESSES: The meeting will be held at the EPA Office of Pesticide 
Programs, One Potomac Yard, Conference Center South (Room S-4370-80,
